A Study of Cosmos

Pin It

Pale yellow, sharing a pot with lower-growing yellow larkspur and bunches of sweet white alyssum, this cosmos changes hue with the light: Shade brings out the yellow; sunshine softens it to almost-but-not-quite white; overcast skies give it a pearlescent quality not otherwise seen.  A fun study at any time of day.

Take a closer look - someone wanted their photo taken.

Hi Sylvia! I guess I've been gone for a while, haven't I? Hope all is well up your way!

Love all your flower photos- my iris are blooming like crazy right now. I will be sorry to see the iris, peonies, tulip, and other spring flowers say "goodby" for another year. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)
