This was taken on Wheaton College campus while we were college-shopping for my daughter. I prepared it on Feb 3rd because nobody had uploaded a flower photo yet. Then came a flurry of flower photos and with all the talk of Photofolia stopping after 10 years, I just did not feel like uploading it. But it's ready I might as well...
Each year these garden cosmos are a fixed component in my garden. Their colour - as one can see here wonderfully - is a real eye-catcher and it provides a beautiful contrast to the delicate lush green leaves of the plant. The flower literally pops out of the photo. A great contribution to our theme of February!
Greetings from grey, cool and wet Germany!
I'm glad you uploaded it! It looks like the best purple flower to date. It's a choice for me because of the intense color, excellent detail and great framing. I like the little buds. People not uploading, me included, is why PF is dying We still have money for awhile, even without collecting more. REgards, Pat
