Last Sunflower Bud

Sunflower Bud

I think I may have mentioned before that there’s virtually no form of sunflowers that I don’t totally love. This little bud was one of the very last this year, I’m sure. I saw it on Halloween in the Rio Grande Bosque (northwest Albuquerque).

A lovely fall day along the Rio Grande as it runs through Albuquerque, surrounded by changing cottonwoods and with the Sandia mountains in the background.

A corner post in Albuquerque’s South Valley with sunflowers, morning glories, and a cross. A classic New Mexican summer scene.
