sprouted in February. It took them quite a while to take off in the garden, but when they did, they totally overpowered all the other flowers in their section! Next year I will plant these again, but they'll go behind the roses, where they can kind of use the rose bushes as props.
any case, my lovely cosmos were all falling over and it was time this
past weekend to begin winterizing the gardens. Sis cut them all down and
pulled out the roots. The organics got composted, but the flowers went
into a milk jug on the table. Most of the flowers are white, but there's
one bright pink one that just pops.
So... I'm grateful for autumn, cut flowers, and gardens.
