Avocado Leaves


“I’ve never been without a garden, It’s a lifetime challenge: a thing of beauty and a 3-D puzzle.”   Beatrice J. Elye

Avocado leaves have an interesting texture.  They almost beg to be photographed, and turned into a montage. That’s what I did with two photos of these interesting plants.


Cosmos: A Garden Favorite

I love Cosmos. It’s easy to grow, and reseeds itself, showing up in unexpected corners of the garden from year to year.  Cosmos is also a very cooperative flower to photograph.  This morning bright and early, I picked a single blossom, dropped it into a pretty glass piece that used to belong to my mother, and took this photo.  I post-processed with just a bit of desaturation, and some soft fill light.
