Tee that bloom is just gorgeous. Is it a perennial? Or does it reseed itself?
I love the feathery foliage.

Lynn, it's an annual but does reseed. I pulled that one up from somewhere else and stuck it in that old copper boiler. I call it "The Revenge of the Cosmos". Hilarious! Sometimes I'd swear it's on the move. Shrug! Like this photo below ...

I've fallen in love with the Cosmos this year, but do get the 'Purity Superior' rather than 'Purity' if you want the tall variety. 'Purity' is much shorter. This one can top 4 ft. The tall Cosmos are the ones that have me smitten at the moment.

Thanks Tee, I will try to remember that.
Oh look, I can star it and it will save to my profile page. Hurray!

I forget about that too. Thanks for the reminder. My rememberer gets tired sometimes. Big Grin

I have just started using it, but forget sometimes, because my rememberer was broke a long time ago. Whistling
