Fall and Frost Shadows

Got outdoors with the camera this morning for some pictures before all the frost had melted off from the yard. Fall is a pretty time of year around here. Click on the individual pictures to start a slide show.

Just an FYI, the page layout for this page is “jacked” in IE 8 at a 1280×1024 resolution. The images are squished to about 5 pixels wide and the the right column (e.g. “The Blatherations of Others”) is overlapping the comments area.
Looks fine in Google Chrome at the same resolution.

Being a grass, (American) “Indan” corn (maize) has somewhat obscure flowers — the tassles at the tip (male) and the “ears” (female), hugging the stem. The “corn flower”/cornflower I’m thinking of — (Centaurea cyanus?) sometimes called “Batchelor’s button” — grows in real/European corn (wheat, mostly, but also oats, barley, and related lower-growing grain-producing grasses).
