I have several orange cosmos in my front garden and they are thriving.  Aren't they delightful?  These are for Orange You Glad It's Friday for July 12, 2013.  To visit OYGIF, please go to:

Yellow flowers~cosmos~Sunday Stills Challenge~070713

These cosmos are all in my garden, in the front yard.  I bought a wildflower mixture from American Meadows and sowed the seeds last Spring.  I now have cosmos, zinnias, a little sunflower, and some four-o'clocks.  I'm very happy with this first garden out front and I enjoy watching the birds come to the flowers, especially the hummingbirds.  I'm already planning my fall garden and I will plant new seeds in August.  This is for the Sunday Stills Challenge, "yellow flowers" for July 7, 2013.  To visit Sunday Stills, please go to:

Not my flowers (I wish...)

No, these aren't in my garden.  Rather, they are in a garden up near Garner Valley, at about 5,000 feet elevation.  Mine get partial shade, and I may have to trim back my mesquite tree to allow them to get more sun.  Aren't they gorgeous?
