My old laptop has finally been retired. Editing images had become an extremely tedious and painful process. The hard drive was near capacity, RAM seemed to be nonexistent, right-clicking made for a circling mouse cursor that lasted up to a minute. The new laptop is sleek, beautiful and unbelievably fast. Oh, how I love viewing and editing photos on a high resolution monitor. Life is good.
I still have a number of images to go through from earlier in October, but here are some from recent days.
This beautiful sunrise was enjoyed prior to a very wet and dreary day. At least we had the morning.
A favorite to photograph, our neighbor’s lovely ornamental grass basking in the early evening sunlight.
I saved these pretty little cosmos from a more than a few evenings of frost. They have shown their gratitude by continuing to bloom. These are the first white blossoms I’ve seen this year.
A sunny day with highs in the mid-5o’s brought out the last honey bee of the season. I don’t expect to see any more until spring.
Daphne enjoyed some late afternoon sun and posed for a few photos. It helped that I held one of her favorite tennis balls in my left hand. She was very captivated.
She was very patient, but then she started looking at me like this. Way too serious.
I treated her to some fetch when the photo shoot was over.
I’m quite certain that she felt it was worth the wait.
The end of the growing season is near, but I still have several plants producing fruits, vegetables and flowers. After a short weekend away to attend my niece’s wedding, we came home to lots of things ready for picking.
