I love “Cosmos” flowers, all they need is love , water and a little Sun like all my favorite people. Easy as pie. I start them in egg containers with toothpick holes in the bottoms and a little dirt after Valentines Day. Then I plant them Mothers Day, and by the 4th of July I have a rainbow of my Dollar Store flowers surrounding our little house. All different colors…and when I clip a few and bring them inside I pop them into a little sugar-water in a vase and they pull their little heads back up and smile for a week or two. So pretty and so easy. Smiling flowers. So easy. Have a great one.
P.S. cut them down after the first hard frost and they come back in the spring…hard to keep a good flower down.
