burst of cosmos
to my surprise, in the last few days, maybe because we have
finally gotten much needed rain, my cosmos have burst into blossoms.
this patch of cosmos in the wildflowers seems miniature.
these blooms are tiny. i didn't have these in the summer.
the sun is shining quite happily this morning after two days
of downpours. the cosmos seem to be sparkling in the rays.
today is my day to have my precious 4 year old "elle".
she is exploring the garden with our new little kitty "jade".
we adopted "jade" who was abandoned at 3 weeks.
she is now a mere 7 weeks old. she is very tiny but a sweet little girl.
her name stands for my four youngest children, jesse, abbey, david and ethan.
abbey thought of it and it fits because she has lovely jaded eyes.
bees are all over these newest blossoms and
seem to be in their own little havens.
there are just a few white ones and i love them.
the cosmos are all standing at attention with the
latest moisture falling from heaven...
...reaching high to feel the warmth of sunshine.
i am grateful for the last hooray of my cosmos!
