Juanita, those are really nice photos. I love your garden. The cosmos with the hazy background is a great shot. (Next year I going to try some of those old fashioned annuals in my garden.)

What's the tall plant with reddish leaves in the last photo?

Thanks Bean...It was just breathtaking that morning with the sun coming down and thru, all dewy, and foggy...I was surprised they turned out...I didn't know if it had anything to do with lowering the image quality or shutter priority mode which I have been practicing alot with...I've tried to capture these kind pics before and always looked unreal bluish mist-fog...anyhow...

those reddish plants are 'Intense Purple' amaranth...they are prolific reseeders...I don't mind though cos with those kind of reseeders I can just pluck where I don't want and sometimes it makes up for those that didn't come thru...If you (or anybody else) would like I can save some seeds...and the cosmos are Sensation Picotee, 1st time trying this particular one...but they are just beautiful colored flowers...

Juanita,

Wonderful pics. The large photo exceptional. The fog and lighting.

I love the first one the most. The dew drops hanging from the cosmos (I LOVE cosmos), and the lighting is just perfect. You got a wonderful batch of photos. Wouldn't they be nice, framed and grouped together?

The pictures are fabulous and I think Joan has an excellent idea. It would make a beautiful grouping.
