Recently, I’ve started some of my summer flowers from seed and the potential for future colour and perfume laying dormant in those little packages has got me daydreaming once again about all of the inspiring and cheerful cosmos I saw in the Caribbean.
The flowers in these photos were photographed in St. Lucia where our friend David grew a massive patch of orange and yellow cosmos all along one side of a very old stone wall.
Here is a view taken from the other side of the wall. The burgundy and pink plant on the far right is the bronze roselle I posted about previously. Unfortunately, try as I might, I was unable to obtain germination from those seeds.
These days, the weather here in Toronto is wonderful, but sometimes I miss the Caribbean so badly, it feels like a big hole in my gut.
