  2. I like flowers a lot, specially on somebody else allotment. On my is just taking the space from vegies. And to be honest they just die on my plot. Even the toughest one will die.

  5. Ha! I grew these from seed this year for the first time (in the garden at home). They've only just started flowering a week ago. They seemed so small and feeble that I planted them out all over the place. I should have checked the guide height as the green frond are now 4 ft high and dominating all the beds! Nice flowers though as you have captured.

    1. The last one is a new variety called Xanthos. It is lower growing and has smaller flowers.

  9. So beautiful. Cosmos one of my favourite flowers. Always blooms in my garden. I try many times to plant many more colors but always failed. Only the yellow & orange cosmos are resistant with our local weather.
