Garden Tuesday - Cosmos

Cosmos

My cosmos spends most of it’s summer hidden from view, by all the big burly plants.

But in the fall, when everything else is dying away, it’s lovely delicate flowers have their chance in the spotlight.

Every flower deserves their five minutes of fame. And they are so cute.

Really a sweet flower photo, Pam. It deserves attention!

And BTW, I do "pasta stuff" a lot....uses up all the leftovers!

I love cosmos, we have some sun in the backyard now after a serious de-limbing. I should plant some this coming spring, they just keep on keeping on, always offering a bloom. Thanks for the reminder.

Looks so good. We have passed the pretty line, and everything is starting to look like... November in Kansas

Lovely. Among my favorite annuals. So easy to grow. Some of my mum's towered at seven feet.

I love cosmos, but have never been able to keep it alive. Weird, I know. It's supposed to be one of the easiest, no brainer plants. I finally just decided to enjoy it in other people's yards!

Well, the big burly plants probably save the little cosmos from burning up! Sounds like a win to me!

Hi Pam, The Cosmos is pretty this time of year, isn't it??? Another blogger posted Cosmos today also...

Hope you are doing okay... How's school this year?
Hugs,
Betsy
