Don't you just love it when an unexpected flower
appears in your garden? I did not plant these
Cosmos, they came up volunteer from seeds that
fell last year. They were not even
pretty last year, so I did not replant them.
The blossoms are so large and stunning. We have had
a very dry and somewhat cool summer, so I am
beginning to believe Cosmos like this kind of weather.
It seems I learn something new every year in my garden.
I think that is what makes it so enjoyable.
I am celebrating my 65th birthday today. It is
so hard to believe that I am that old! Where oh where
have the years gone? I love my birthdays and I am
always so greatful that I have another year to celebrate.
We are taking off around noon and going up through the
Amish Country. I love looking at their flowers and gardens
this time of year. Tonight we are eating at my favorite
Italian Restaurants. Happy Birthday to me!
