Rest for the Weary – Sunflower Sunset

Sunflowers are blooming again in Colorado as harvest time approaches for the farmers here in the state.  It’s that time of year when the crops will produce their bounty and before long Fall will approach with the many beautiful colors filling the landscape.

This field here is actually in the north part of Denver and you would never know it, but it’s right across the street from a number of hotels and a diner.  This is one of the largest fields I’ve seen in a couple of years. The Denver area had quite a bit of moisture and looks like it will benefit the sunflower crops this year.

The sunflowers here have pretty much grown to their maximum size and some were starting to wilt. This sunflower sunset was the end of a long day for these sunflowers.  It appears that there will be some rest for the weary before they perk up again the next day.

There is another field further north of town.  Stay tuned for more sunflower images coming soon.
