Swamp sunflower season

Standard

In Pennsylvania I always looked forward to photographing tulips in the spring. Well now, seasons and flowers are flipped, and I look forward to photographing swamp sunflowers in the fall.

Here is the link to last year’s swamp sunflower post: https://texastalesblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/08/swamp-sunflowers/

The swamp sunflowers are in a meadow at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, a favorite outdoor location of ours.

This year is the first time Derek’s gotten to see the meadow in person. He enjoyed photographing the flowers as much as I did. It was a beautiful morning, so we stayed at the Arboretum for a few hours, and got photos of all types of flowers and foliage.

The above photo is American beautyberry. There were clusters of this everywhere. It looks very striking among the leaves.

If you look hard enough, you will find small signs of fall foliage…
