Cosmos


One of my favorite late summer flowers is Cosmos. The soft, seashell colors of pink, fuchsia, lavender and white, surrounded by ferny, grass green foliage add billowy movement to the garden. When most of the garden is glowing in the bright, garish yellow of rudbeckia, goldenrod and heliopsis, the cool colors of the cosmos are serenity to the eyes.

The hollyhocks are on their last blooms now and I'm hoping they will reseed prolifically for next year.
