Here are the first cosmos. I DO have a reason why I love cosmos. And it's not because they are such an interesting plant with a flower perched on top of such a dainty stem with feathery leaves.
The last of my peonies. I bury my face in these to soak up every bit of their full, sweet smell.
I have waited 6 years for this poppy to bloom. I moved it from my old house and finally, after all of that time, it bloomed. It has a "sister" that bloomed in the back. It was peach.
