I was intrigued with our tall sunflowers silhouetted behind our Roman shade, as the sun set behind them.

I like this – looks mysterious! Thanks for sharing. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about sunflowers in case you have time to look? Sunny greetings, Sam 🙂
I’m checking it out momentarily!
Thank you! I really appreciated your sunny sunflower poem. We are subsumed again with smoke from more lightning-generated forest fires!
Oh no horrible. Guess you are housebound then?
For now–the smoke is pretty bad, even from a distance. It’s not close to us, but noxious nonetheless. . .I’ll get out later. 🙂

Hope the situation has improved today Lauren?
Um. . .not really. 🤔 I appreciate your thoughts and your asking. We can’t know how long the fires will burn. They are so big and so many!
Are they a regular occurrence where you are?
The fires are caused by lightning, and thunderstorms are a fairly regular summer occurance here. It’s grassland, semi-arid steppe.
Don’t suppose there is much that anyone can do about them then? Must be hard?
Crews are fighting the fires, but it’s been hard to gain on them. . .The smoke still prevails, not surprisingly. Thanks for asking!
That is very pretty. We forgot to plant sunflowers this year.
Thank you, Ellen. You might want to calendar next year’s planting now! 🙂
That’s really pretty, and a subtle reminder of approaching Fall.
Thank you, Jane; and yes, I suppose it is a harbinger of Fall–what good news after so much heat!
