Flower Wednesday

I haven't joined in with Riitta's Flower Wednesday for a while but today I walked through the lovely Cosmos flowers just before the Lakeside Walk at Trentham Gardens and couldn't resist taking photos to share with you.   They have been looking stunning for a few weeks now.

    1. Oh, that is a long way but it sounds as if you have traveled that time before so I'm guessing you have visited the gardens?:)

    1. We have grown them a couple of times once from seed and once wecoungt a coupl of plants but they never reached the height of these and the sheer numbers makes them look so wonderful. I guess they will come back next year if they re-seed theselves as they are annuals:)

    1. Gosh, are the participants swimming in the lake itself? Perhaps there is another venue. I did notice that new pontoons are being built at the moment, perhaps for this purpose? The lake is full of weeds which are being cleared by the look of the piles waiting to be collected at the side of the lake - just in the area of the new pontoon:)

  10. Cosmos are one of my all-time favourite flowers, but since they're an annual I rarely plant them. You captured these flowers beautifully! I love how they seem to float among the stalks.

  11. Beautiful photos Rosie - they look so lovely en masse. We started to grow them a few year's back and now plant some every year - the bees and hoverflies just adore them. They've been late getting going this year but are now looking lovely :)

    1. They do look wonderful and they were buzzing with insects too. We had them in our garden for a couple of years but haven't had any for the last two, I must plant some again next year:)
