From the Bike Path, a Last View of Summer


Summer pedaling is coming to close.  I shot this sunflower just days before most had disappeared.  What happened?  There were so abundant.  Oh, well, they will return next summer.


Nice, though, that the multiuse trails in my neighborhood are being patched and repaved.  Much appreciated by Bob and I, whose commuting bikes have little in the way of suspension.

For some reason I thought these yellow flowers that are brightening up the late summer/early fall all over Arizona were Black Eyed Susans. I took some photos and was about to call them that. But thanks to your post I double-checked and they are truly "Common Sunflowers." Thanks! Now would like to find some real Black Eyed Susans though so I can learn the difference.

Black Eyed Susans look quite similar. I had amny growing in yard in Kentucky. I don't know that I've seen any growing in the wild here. Google!

I for one will prefer autumn's cooler weather, even though we won't have pretty flowers.
