It looks great, but it is rather small isn't it. Now concerning June 9th pic. Apologies to Barbara for not seeing you, but you are half covered with ribbons, also to Katy's arm still cant see it, lastly to Neil, I thought you were a council worker on his lunch break

Lovely colour and detail.

It is Maureen. Don't think the colour varies much apart from the chocolate cosmos which smells strongly of CHOCOLATE.

Maureen's spot on, Cosmos Bipinnatus.

Beautiful picture - such detail. It would make a great jigsaw puzzle

I don't understand Derek platt's comments, he's probably dreaming at the time he wrote this post.

Beautiful. Is it a perennial.

Comment by: Maureen on 8th July 2014 at 21:22

No Ann..it's an annual....but I'm a learner with this one,and hopefully it will produce seed for next year..we'll see.

Comment by: Anne on 8th July 2014 at 21:33

No it's an annual, I grow from seed each year. Very easy to do.
