Six months ago I was boasting about the benefits of living in the Southern hemisphere. That was then; this is now. We are into autumn, digging out the warm clothing and seeing which of the heaters still work.
But for me, autumn means cosmos. My mother used to call them ‘summer’s last fling’ and that’s pretty much what they are. We had a good show this year, probably because of all the late rain in March.
These photos are from a moving car – the best shows are along the road. However, there’s no shoulder to park on and I’m not taking my life in my hands to snap a few pictures. In case anyone thinks I was taking the ‘using your cell phone while driving’ thing to a whole new level, my son took the photos.
And another stretch of road.
This last one was accidental, but I like it so here it is.
