Cosmos: A Garden Favorite

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same. -Anonymous

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.
