Cosmos

Went out at sunrise yesterday and took these photos. Getting to know my new camera.

Click to enlarge:


A flower of a vine growing among'st the ripening maize.


Cosmos.


A weed, one of the few good things to come out of our 2nd War of Independence, (Boer War 1899 - 1902). Came with British imported horse feed from Argentina. 

Took the British Empire, at the high't of it's Imperial power, three years to defeat a handful of peasant farmers.


Cosmos flowers come in white and purple, and various shades of pink.

The morning glory like that grows also in our neighboring corn fields. The season is not even started here yet as corn won't be planted for two more months. They are great photos.

They might not have won even then, if the "bloody English" hadn't demorallized the fighter's by killing their families by holding them in concentration camps.

Lovely photos!
