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.
I have taken this shot a zillion times. It is particularly beautiful at night. I need to get out and get some night shots before it gets too cold.
Another picture taken at Indian Mounds Park in St. Paul, Minnesota. Oak trees kind of turn brown in the fall. This tree is beautiful any tine of year. The bench next to it provides a nice quiet place to enjoy the view.
I have taken this show before. Indian Mounds Park is on the river bluff with views of the river and downtown. It is a great spot to photograph a little color and the perfect place to get a good sunset, blue hour or night time picture of downtown.
Sunlight on maple leaves. A common sight for about two days. 🙂
