Fall Flower Peak ….

“Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom.  They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.”  ~ Jim Carrey


The Fall flowers are at their peak this week.  There are huge clumps of asters (mostly purple and white) sprinkled with goldenrod just about everywhere you look.  If you take a closer look, they will appear to be moving and a loud buzzing noise will accompany the sight … they are covered in bees.  It is a gorgeous sight along the roads and fields … though a bit hazardous if you are allergic to bees or pollen (the air is sweet smelling, too).

The wild sunflowers are also blooming like crazy.  There are several varieties of these in the State of Minnesota that are quite similar so I am not sure which one this is.  They are only 2-3 inches in size and some are 4-5 feet tall.

  2. It’s sure good to read that there are plenty of bees! There seemed to be fewer here this year. We still have a few asters in bloom and some butterweed, but most of our flowers are through for the summer. Too much heat and not enough rain this year.

  4. Beautiful flowers. I can’t tell the wild sunflowers apart, either.
