Saturday Photo: Street Flowers

We had cold weather and warm weather this week, followed by rainy weather right now.  Many of the summer flowers are looking a little bedraggled, but the cosmos continue to shine.

I've always loved the name and think the ease which they grow almost anywhere there's sun to be absolutely wonderful.  This group was blooming in the small space next to a street sign.  They probably were planted--they're annuals and must be started fresh each year--since the nearest house had clouds of them blooming in its little front yard.

Their only drawback is that they want full sun, and our shady yard means that I've never have had any luck in growingthem.

Love it when other people succeed, though.
