Late Summer in the High Desert

During the last few weeks of seed collecting the quantities have begun to dwindle. However, there have been species that are just beginning to flower like the Cleome and Helianthus, or spiderflower and sunflower. I am still amazed about the beauty that the late summer has brought. A few weeks ago all of the plants were beginning to dry out and die off for the year, but a new flush of blooms have come to life. It is a beauty to behold. I hope that I will have enough time to enjoy them before the season ends.
