Autumn fuzz

These little flowers are setting seed right now. The tiny fuzzballs are only a centimeter or so (about half an inch) across. In the morning dew they get clumpy and not so aerodynamic. But still, somehow they manage to fly away to grow new plants because they're everywhere in and around the vineyard.

The fuzz on this flower head is drying out after being soaked by rain.

Our wind has shifted toward the north and we're expecting to feel some chill in the air this weekend. Autumn is definitely here.
