Take a Look

I don't know about your plant observation radar, but this time of year my antennae are up and alert.  Plants in fall bloom, water garden lilies, lotus and grasses at their glorious vertical seed-head attention give us pause to look and smile. Why?  First, they simply look stunning on sunny fall days. Plus there hasn't been any heavy moisture to topple them. The low angle light seems to give them their own spotlight, especially yellow flowers like sunflowers and black-eyed Susan (rudbeckias). I've snapped a few photos for your enjoyment. Take it all in when you can, we know what is waiting around the corner.
