Doodads — sunflowers and others

Video of sunflowers taken today. The bees are busy busy busy.

A poem from childhood that the asters reminded me of:

A road like brown ribbon
A sky that is blue,
A forest of green with the sky peeping through.
Asters deep purple,
A grasshopper’s call,
Today it is summer;
Tomorrow is fall.
