Another passing Summer

Not just the orchard of France but in the Drôme there is always a cornucopia of good things to eat.  In the Diois where we live the local climate and fertile valleys provide for a huge variety of produce carefully grown and of great quality.  The most visually striking of all the crops is that of the sunflower.  Large fields of yellow heads follow the sun until, one day quite suddenly, the movement ceases and, in the most poignant sign of departing summer, the flowers hang their heads like penitants.

For years we profited from bright yellow fields and huge smiling flowers.  This year, it was the pathos of a passing season that intrigued us.  Untypically this year the summer didn't end but went on and on gloriously until a few days ago.
