A Coneflower stands proud displaying its brilliant color out on the prairie.
The last few glimpses of fall color ebb away, turning varying shades of brown. Bright sunlight helps show off these last hints of color. This morning I went out and caught my limit of five trout in about an hour. This gave me time to mow and push into the garden, tons of leaves that have built up over the last three days. My trees are about half done close in to my home. The leaves are a good fertilizer, and almost disappear by spring.
These hornet nests appear when the leaves fall. Sometimes it is surprising how close they are to human activity. This was in a small county campground.
At the right angle I saw a heart.
