Nothing Gold Can Stay

That line in my post title from Robert Frost's poem no doubt has deeper meaning than the flowers in my late-summer garden, but it works.  For the most part, the color I see outside is gold:  sunflowers and Black-Eyed Susans (rudbeckia). We've had more than 6 weeks of dry heat (temps between 90-100 F), so the flowers that thrive in those conditions are much appreciated.

I planted three varieties of sunflowers in the spring, and they haven't disappointed.  The perennial "susans" pop up in various areas of my planting strips and I don't discourage them.
