Blooming Thursday: Dwarfed by the Cosmos

I’d like to give a shout-out to the bird, or perhaps it was the wind, for planting the cosmos.  These pink and yellow beauties are my new garden darling, the flower I didn’t know I loved.  They were part of a mixed flower seed packet from last season.  We had several flowers bloom over many months, but nothing as spectacular as this.  Around the corner from their original home, a leafy green plant emerged.  I let it grow along with the pumpkins and now this flowering lovely is taller than I am.  I’m 5’10” so that is saying a lot.

Here’s a little photo journal of life among the cosmos:

  1. Alsy, you have become quite the photographer, in addition to your writing talents. These photos are particularly impressive.

    • Thank you so much. I’ve been learning by trial and error, but hope to eventually take a class. Mike was into photography in high school, so he’s been giving me tips about aperture and ISO. It’s quite interesting looking at a piece of the world through a camera lens.
