I just realized that my poor blog has been neglected the last few days. It’s no other reason but that I’ve had a VERY busy week. But not so busy that I didn’t have time to pick myself some flowers today.
As I looked out the front window this morning the Cosmos seem to be reaching towards the sun. This prompted me to take a few pictures and then pick myself a bouquet.
How about a Cosmo’s eye view?
If you have a brown thumb and want an easy flower to grow, cosmos are for you. If you let them go to seed, they will drop the seed and replant themselves automatically and you’ll have almost a constant supply of flowers year round. (in the warmer states of course) You do still have to pull out the old flowers though. I’m sure in the Summer these would do great up North though too. They grow so fast that even the weeds don’t stand a chance, so that’s a bonus right there.
Here’s this mornings bouquet.
Doesn’t it just make you happy?
Have a lovely day my friends.
