For the most part the flowers have been dainty all year and then out of nowhere comes the one pot that looked different. The stem was fat and tree trunk like. It was much darker than the other plants of it’s kind. It was the last to bloom.

Not a day after I thought our Cosmo growing season was coming to an end come the biggest and most beautiful blooms of the year. So awesome in fact this flower gets a post all to itself.
