autumn bowing

From my gardening calendar:  When the sunflowers droop their heavy heads, it's time to roast the seeds.
The large sunflowers in my garden are definitely drooping their heavy heads right now, but there will be no seed roasting happening this year.  Most of the sunflowers I planted were strictly decorative for the garden sunflower house I grew. 
All of the tall sunflowers are beginning to lean as they finish up their growing season.  I usually leave them alone through the autumn weeks as it's fun to watch the little birds find them.  The birds are probably even a better indicator of when the sunflower seed are the best as they flit in and out of the garden landing on the sunflowers to pick the perfect seeds and fill their little bellies.

Such a good reminder of our Heavenly Father's provision for our lives!

"Look at the birds of the air:  they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; and yet your heavenly father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?" ~ Matthew 6:26

May you rejoice in the beauty of autumn and bow your head with the heaviness of thanksgiving for God's provision!
