3 for Lynette

It is my lovely niece's birthday
and for her
i offer up 3 new-to-my-garden favorites.
Actually
it's 3 photos of 2 "double click" cosmos.

The first blooms on 'Snow Puff'
don't look anything like the blooms that

Happy Birthday, Dear Lynette!
If we lived closer
i'd bring you a bouquet of the real things!
