I planted a patch of Buckwheat this past Spring as forage for the Mallard Ducks - Now in the dawn of Autumn the blossoms still linger on.....

The flowers are now sparse and the stalks / foliage stunted from lack of rain..... but still are beautiful. The visiting bees this year were quite taken with the buckwheat for it blossomed all summer long. I enjoyed the patch so much I will replant next year with a mix of wildflowers.
