    It’s always fun to see your posts & wonder: what kinds of beauty will I see, when I open your mail….this one is stunning! The colors, the vase & the backlight. It makes me happy to see what you do with all your flowers and colors and vases. Thank you!

    Wow! Such beautiful flowers🀩

  4. Love the yellow/gold cosmos! I always think of cosmos as pink, white and dark red. I’m going to try gold next year. Did you use seeds or bedding plants?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Ellen! These grow easily from seed sown after last frost. I collected seed from a garden I visited a few years ago and have grown them ever since, saving seed in the fall. I like them better that the pink species as they are more mildew resistant and less floppy. Recommended!

    Beautiful colours!

    Lovely! I sowed the seeds you sent me but did so late and they stubbornly refused to make an appearance, at least thus far.

  8. The swirly blue-indigo does a good job setting off the yellow and orange of the flowers.

  9. That burst of yellow with that blue vase is utterly delightful.

    I love the colors and the simplicity of this!

  11. Very nice! So nice to see the colour on the drab day we’re having.

    Stunning! Excellent choice of backlighting and blue vase. You have the eye of an interior decorator!

  13. Joanne says:

    The bright yellow and blue together looks stunning! ❀

  14. So bright and sunny! Blue and yellow/orange make a great combo!

  15. shoreacres says:

    Your selection of blue and yellow certainly is reminiscent of Van Gogh, even absent the sunflowers!

  16. The sun wouldn’t be brighter than this beautiful bouquet. πŸ™‚

  17. Always so nice, when I’ve been off for a while, to come back to your lovely flowers!

    I never knew Cosmos came in that colour. Glorious.

    Amazing flower pot.

  20. Cathy says:

    I ordered these for next year and am so glad I did now seeing them in your vase! They are simply lovely. πŸ˜ƒ

  21. How lovely! Sun in a vase.

  22. Jet Eliot says:

    Cosmos are such wonderful flowers, they can fill out an arrangement or be the sole flower. The yellow ones are so cheerful, too. Matched with this vase, they are a smile to behold. Lovely, Eliza.

  23. Maria says:

    The translucence of the light works out great with the petals!

  24. Hello from Aussie Brisbane. What Beautiful flowers. I really enjoy looking at such beautiful pictures of Lovely flowers. Thank you for posting them πŸ™‚

  25. Jane Lurie says:

    Happy colors. Much needed. Thank you, Eliza. πŸ’›

    That back lighting is gorgeous and really enhances the flowers and their colours.
