Last Flowers of the Growing Season

I took these photos the day before our first hard frost(11/2). They truly were the last of the season :o(

That first flower is amazing!

That is a seashell cosmos. They were very late bloomers and unfortunately weren't able to reseed(I'm hoping there are some unsprouted seeds from my initial planting that will surprise me next year!):o(
I bought them from Select Seeds(

They are very tall plants(mine were about 5 to 6 feet)
and took much longer to flower than I would have guessed but the wait was worth it.

I loved the bush and berries in the background.
