We were biting our nails as the rain poured down with a vengeance. Thankfully, only minor losses in the flower patch.
We worked late into the night Tuesday to get as many seeds sown as possible. Sunflowers, zinnias, dill, calendula, celosia and more marigolds! We also transplanted out seedlings of cosmos, and bachelor buttons.
The storms started right on time. Some of the cosmos were washed away by the heavy rains. Cosmos are annual flowers with colorful daisy-like flowers that sit atop long slender stems. Blooming throughout the summer months, they attract birds, bees, and butterflies to your garden. Growing easily from seeds, cosmos even survive in poor soil conditions. So an excuse to start more seeds!
