    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday!

  6. Christina says:

    Mine aren’t pleated like that, I wonder why. Great capture.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Christina – this is one called ‘Cupcakes’ which I was trialling for Which? Gardening. The flowers didn’t open till about 2 weeks ago but they are all pleated like this so I wonder if that is how they got their name – like cupcake cases? This particular flower looked as if it had no separate petals – just one pleated disc…

      • Christina says:

        Which did give you some interesting plants to trail. Do uou think you might have seeds of this too?

        • Cathy says:

          This is the first year I have saved any seed, Christina, so I am not sure what to expect from cosmos. Saving seed from the sunflowers was easy, and I have saved seed from a nigella and a self seeded poppy too. As these white ones have only just flowered perhaps it is unlikely they will be pollinated, hence no seed – but if I AM able to collect some you are very welcome to a share!

  7. So cool! The petals are so striking. Happy WW

  8. Mine aren’t pleated like that either. That is interesting. I’ll have to ask around. Beautiful title for your photograph.

  9. Chloris says:

    You always do such great titles. That’ s just what it looks like. How pretty.

  10. Gunilla says:

    Gorgeous! Made me think of the pleated skirts I had as a little girl. πŸ™‚

  11. A perfect bloom, Cathy! And a perfect description, too!
