There are only two flowers so far, but lots of potential for more.
I haven't had cosmos this color before. They're so bright and cheery! But have you noticed that yellow flowers seem to be the hardiest? It seems to me that there are always yellow flowers around. Okay, this is yellow-orangish, but still.....
My many-years-old black-eyed susans are blooming, too.
I did a bit of photo playing, cropping for different effects.
Close-ups are always fun.
Which of the three shots did you like the best?
There's another plant growing out there that I haven't identified. It doesn't have any buds on it yet, so I'll save that for another day, if indeed it blooms at all.
Now I'm going to jolt your eyeballs with a different color! My mini rose is blooming again, and this time it was not damaged by kittens (or whatever). A bit of misty rain makes it extra pretty.
That pink flower is an impatiens. It gives you an idea of how tiny the rose bush is!
