Cosmos 'dazzler' <-- really think I bought *far* too much of this one and too little of the 'center mix' ... Might need to change my icon to a cosmos.

Oh, well. I like red (understatement of the year), but I'll reseed the next year with a mix.

This corner near the front door
No better description, but a little of the center mix, a little clover, and a packet of cardinal flowers. I hear it attracts hummingbirds, also, it's a rare native plant. So I decided to help out in that manner. I hope they take. The seeds are a fine red dust. -_-

For that matter, I hope the whole fucking yard takes. I put down over $100 in seed. And I'm quite anxious that I've done something wrong, but I also know I've taken far more care with this project than many people normally do. So...

Cosmos are very pretty- I've had small planters started from seed that grew pink, purple, and blue cosmos- love the red color you've chosen!

Holy shit - it's going to look so beautiful! :D
