In dappled sunshine

Orange Cosmos with a few Busy Lizzies. A Japanese friend sent me the seeds for the orange cosmos.

The chocolate ones smell chocolaty so do the orange ones smell orangey?

These little gems of colour are so precious at this time of year aren't they. I've never seen orange cosmos, I did have the chocolate which was lovely for a few years, but left suddenly:-)

No Lindak they don't smell orangey unfortunately and thank you Bornagain
(what a nice choice of username) the orange cosmos actually look yellow in the photo, but they are bright orange. I haven't seen them in this country. I have been dead-heading them frequently, but I should really save seeds. And yes that is what I see from bed, makes it easier to see the wasp who keeps coming for a drink!

Oops! Sorry Bornagain, I was looking at a different photo. That is a view from the front and my bedroom view is from the back. Has a birdbath in it.
