Autumn Gold

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long time since I've written on my blog.  I was gone for the whole month of October visiting the New England States.  My husband and I had a really good time.  Then, about 1 1/2 weeks after I got back from our trip, my computer crashed and so it took my IT guy about 2 weeks to get all my photos and apps back on my new computer.  So I am just now getting myself organized and ready to start entering posts on my blog.

I took this photo of a sunflower before we left.  It was growing in my husband's garden and I loved the various shades of gold in the flower in contrast with the green leaves and stem.  Fall is a favorite time of the year for me and this flower just made me all warm inside.  

I really liked some of the pictures that I took on our trip, too.  So I may just start a new gallery of New England pictures.  Stay tuned for more to follow.  

Enjoy the Holidays and have a GREAT weekend,

Diane

Helianthus or sunflowers is a genus of plants comprising about 70 species in the family Asteraceae all of which are native to North America except three species in South America. The common name, "sunflower", also applies to the popular annual species Helianthus annuus, the common sunflower. This and other species, notably Jerusalem artichoke, are cultivated in temperate regions as food crops and ornamental plants. The domesticated sunflower, H. annuus, is the most familiar species. Perennial sunflower species are not as popular for gardens due to their tendency to spread rapidly and become invasive.
