Autumn Beauty Sunflower

This stowaway from Goshen finally bloomed this week. I’ve enjoyed the color next to the purple maple tree, as well as the hummingbird I saw yesterday sipping sunflower and cosmos:

    I saw a hummingbird yesterday, too! It zipped in circles over the patch of tall white cosmos, and then must have seen me sitting nearby, and zoomed away. I wondered if cosmos has any attraction for hummers… I’m really into cosmos this year, because they ignore drought and wind, and tolerate poor soil, and they appear in pretty much any color (except blue and black), multiple sizes and heights, and their seeds are really easy to collect for the next year, etc. And the flower essence is also useful for speaking truth from the heart. 🙂 What’s not to love?

  2. Cool! Yes, I love cosmos for the same reason. I did find that they will NOT grow flowers in good soil. They put on loads of foliage but no blooms, so I keep them in their own pots now, since I want my veggies in good soil. In Goshen, they were my favorites for spots where little else would grow. They have such a long season, too! 🙂

  3. Perfect! It’s almost as if she’s waving her petals at you as she announces her and autumn’s arrival. What a lovely stow away she is as she carries the life force from your previous garden to your current garden.

  5. Magnificent… This is the only year in a while I have not set Sunflowers, I totally forgot.. But this more than made up for it.. Plus a neighbour a few doors down has a Huge HUGE one that has multiple blooms that I admire out of my kitchen window each time I wash the pots.. So Nature did not forget me.. LOL
    Wishing you also an Amazing week Laura..
    Love and Hugs
