Scenery: wildflower blossom
Two of the wildflower species in the mix have really taken off and gotten tall where I planted them. (Some others blew elsewhere in the yard and got a foothold there, I believe.) Thanks to plumtreeblossom’s research, I know that they are Cosmos and Coreopsis, and they’ve both gotten over a foot tall — the Cosmos well over.

Last night I saw my first blooms in the patch I’d deliberately planted, but they were something I hadn’t even noticed among the Cosmos and Coreopsis before — little white flowers maybe a centimeter and a half across. This morning one of the Coreopsis buds had blossomed into a lovely orange-yellow flower. Yay!

I'd never heard of the Cosmos before, and then in the span of about an hour there are two posts on my friends list about them. What are the odds!

*bounce bounce!*

The size of your plants just amazes me. Mine are dwarven, but they're blooming. I had 2 new Coreopsis blooms this morning, and about 5 Cosmos are in bloom. I'm still hoping for the "riot of color" I envisioned at planting time, but I'm enjoying the process, as well as your flowers! :-)
