A Few of My Favorite Blooms

Here are a few of my favorite recently-blooming blooms. First, there are the lilies. These are one of the few flowers that were here when I got here. There are three of them. They're quick bloomers, I think they maybe lasted a week, but they are stunning while they last and fragrant too. Just as long as you ignore the big holes in the leaves.

Next, there are my new favorite annuals, Cosmos. I just love them. I've showed them before, but now they're more lush with more blooms. And they just keep going and going. Plus they self-seed. I am really lovin' this flower.

Last, but not least are the Bachelor's Buttons, or Cornflower. I know the photo doesn't look like much. I have NOT been able to get a good photo of them,and they're flopping horribly, but I have a soft spot for these Cornflowers that I managed to grow from seed. Thinning them might have helped, and I tried, I really tried, but I have trouble killing off a perfectly healthy looking seedling. They're still pretty anyway.

  1. There are some flowers that I hate in pink. And there are some I love in pink. I love these pink cosmos!

  2. For some reason, I can't see any photos. I'll return and check again soon. Happy late GTS anyway!

  3. I don't know why, but there are no photos loading.
    I'm sure they are very pretty.

  4. Kylee - These cosmos have restored my faith in annuals. Planting something every year didn't seem worth it before.

    Hrmm... I don't know what the deal was with these pics. I checked on August 12 and they looked fine to me, but this morning they were gone. Hopefully they're back now!

    Thanks for the heads up and for stopping by.
