C - Cosmos

I was hoping to share a picture of catleya (the orchid) for this week, but to my surprise it wasn't in my file anymore, and I just reformatted my camera's memory card, so I thought I was going to miss this week, until I saw one of my framed cross stitched artwork in the house entitled, "Girl with Cosmos." I immediately checked Flickr for images of cosmos, and realizing that I have had pictures of that flower in my old files, I quickly browsed the images in my folders and saw this:

Cosmos


...a picture of an orange cosmos taken last March, when I went for a short vacation in my paternal hometown. I took this picture at the garden of Our Lady of Lourdes grotto in Balaoan, La Union, while doing a side trip there. It was my third time to visit the place, and I knew there were yellow cosmos in the garden, too, but the orange ones were the only available, so I just took pictures of it.

They said taking care of this plant was very easy... I sure hope to have this plant in our garden to make our garden a bit livelier.

Shall love to see your cross stitch. I have done just one tapestry, and I am really proud of it.

Hi Jenn,
Real pretty orange flower. Did not know that they are called Cosmos. Colourful choice of C-word!
Best wishes,
