Stunning photos--especially the Cosmos! Be still my heart. Aren't Cosmos the perfect flowers? Mine are still blooming, too. This time of year is great--still some vibrant blooms, combined with stunning foliage!


The Cosmos was absolutely worth the wait - what a lovely color. I will have to look for seeds for next year. Love all of your fall decorations! Your Honeycomb Butterfly Bush is so beautiful...mine was pretty ho-hum this year. I had not heard that the name changed. I am always so happy when I check and you have posted a new blog!


Kathleen,I love your blog, your pictures and descriptions are amazing. You are so creative! I have another one I look at, that you may like:,her pix are lovely, and she is at a dahlia farm this time.


Thanks all! Shelley ~ thank you too for the blog suggestion. I do follow Jennifer's blog as well and totally agree, it's a wonderful one. I left a comment on that gorgeous dahlia post! Have a great weekend.


I grew cosmos this summer as well. This lemon cultivar is quite unique.
I have no great talents in the kitchen, but would like to try to make apple butter. Even the name sounds delicious.
I love all your fall touches Kathleen.
I have seen a few suggested spellings for Butterfly Bush as well. It is amazing how much butterflies love them. Unfortunately I have no luck with them. They last a few years and then often perish.


I gave up on cosmos! One year I planted seashells from seed, and they didn't bloom till October! That was totally not worth it, because I got a few days of blooms and then the frost took them. And whenever I buy plugs from the nursery, they always underwhelm me. What am I doing wrong? LOL
