Why I love flowers




Visited a garden today and saw these stunning flowers!




The cosmos in particular, below, was so unusual - the petals are formed into tubes, rather than being flat. I have never seen one like this before.

Great post Eleanor! As a new york city florist shop we love seeing people get excited about flowers..

That cosmos is unbelievable. Great find! I haven't seen one like that either.


Anyways, thanks for sharing. These are some lovely flowers and great photography.
