Hi Beth! Isn't it nice to have some late season bloomers like your lovely pink cosmos?

Andrea

Hi Beth,
I love Cosmos. This year I put out seeds of white ones which a garden friend gave to me. I am hoping they will multiply by themselves next season. Otherwise, I will have to order some more. Have a nice weekend, Andrea

I love cosmos, especially the hot pink ones. I had hundreds of them growing everywhere here. Hubby didn't like them because they spread so much and so we weeded them out. I would like to have them again. I now have a spot to try them where they won't take over the gardens.

Enjoyed my visit.

Hi there...I planted Cosmos seeds several weeks ago and now they are several inches tall. I am so excited to see the flowers. Go Cosmos!! Your flower is beautiful!

Felicia

Beautiful :)

Hi Everyone -- The bright pink cosmos were a bit of a surprise, and quite a nice one! And I actually got one more rose bloom after I published the "last rose of summer" -- I was sure that was the last one! Now the salmon mum is coming into bloom to add a bit more spark to the garden.
