I love cosmos, but am more used to seeing them in purply/pink.... love the orange, so cheerful.

I have about a year's worth of Alaska flowers. Someday I will catch up.

The purple flower looks like 'Scotch' thistle to me. A wild flower in the South. Some consider it a weed, but I've always liked it.

Jeanne said...

Beautiful photos! The flowers are starting to fade now. These are a great reminder of a lush summer.

Elephant's Child said...

Love them. And that thistle looks like one I know as Scotch Thistle. A thistle that has plans for world domination...

Ginny said...

Hi Denise. Just dropping in for a quick hello. Since the untimely arrival of the grandson, my time has not been my own. Between NICU visits and now home help . . . well, you probably know the feeling . . . time flies. I'm still blogging but not as much as the past. I've also migrated over to Wordpress, so you will b e finding me there now.
