Back from Fresno after a few days of even more extreme heat. Heavy smoke from the wildfires in the Sierras now extends all the way down the Valley.

The sunflowers are back!

All volunteer corps, self-seeding along the length of the back slope. Birds may assist in scattering sunflower seeds up and down the slope. The sunflowers are almost spent, and I will try scattering the seeds uniformly along the back slope to see what takes hold and blooms next summer.

The pictures capture how smoky the air is this late afternoon.
