A seed from some Cosmos planted in a nearby bed drifted over to a flower pot where this bloom is on a single plant that has become a giant reminder of parent plants much smaller and long gone. This is more a bush, and is now taller than me! It is covered with flowers that compete with the sunset in their vivid color. It is an unexpected gift and I love it.
“And now in age I bud again after so many deaths I live and write; I once more smell the dew and rain, and relish versing.” ~ George Herbert
