I just love my cosmos this year. I have never before had them grow so tall and so abundantly. Their seeds were part of the mix in a box that Lisa gave me last Christmas.
All summer long they were just feathery foliage that kept growing and growing without blooms. I despaired of ever seeing anything but greenery.
But finally they started to bud.
By this time, they were so tall that they started to bend toward the earth. I had no more stakes to hold them up. For the most part, they held one another up.
They are a real joy.
