Growing right on the shore, sheltered from the cold.
There isn’t a lot of fall color left but I found some along the Mississippi River this week.
I just started experimenting with Photoshop a year ago. I just learned how to make it snow which will come in handy because it is hard to get good photos while standing in a snowstorm. I may have gone overboard in this shot and I need to make my snow sparkle a little more.
I saw some clever Halloween decorations but these were my favorites.
They like to bloom in the fall and I like to photograph them. Cosmos are very easy to grow and they usually survive a light frost or two before they give up.
