Store-bought Autumn

Well, if Mother Nature won’t cooperate, we just have to go out and buy our Autumn colors!  The trees outside still think it’s Summer since the temperatures have been pretty consistently in the high 80’s.  That means, if I want some fall color, it has to come home in a pot.  This beautiful red and yellow chrysanthemum was just what we needed.

I haven’t done much macro work lately so, with the weekend being pretty overcast, I thought this would be a great opportunity.  It really should be an easy topic just about any time but I get lazy.  That should never be my excuse since there is always something just waiting to be made into a nice image.  Just need to get up and look for it!
