The Cosmos has become one of my all time favorite flowers. It may have replaced the sunflower as number one on my list.
It's petals have such defined crisp lines.
It can be quite stately if you catch it by itself.
And quite dramatic.
It will dress in orange if invited to a party.
I love it's messy chaos which represents freedom and grace to me.
I think the main reason I love these flowers so much is that I can identify with them. From the feelings of messy chaos to the stately elegance. Sounds like a perfect package.
