cosmos.

Cosmos are annuals, grown for their showy flowers. The flower heads may be bowl– or open cup–shaped and are atop of long stems. Cosmos are easy to grow and make good border or container plants. They make for good decorations in flower arrangements and also attract birds, bees, and butterflies to your garden.

The Lush Life ~ Floret

June 19th, 2015 by Estelle Mays

Longing for a quiet, simpler life, Erin Benzakein and her family moved out of Seattle 14 years ago and relocated to a farm 60 miles north of the city. A few years later, with two small children in tow, she wanted to start a business that allowed her to work from home. She had been a gardener all her life, so she began by growing vegetables, then heirloom apple trees, and she eventually even tried raising chickens. Nothing, sadly, was quite right. It wasn’t until she planted a double row of sweet peas to honor her great-grandmother that she found her calling.

She began documenting her experience on her website, floretflowers.com. “We discussed the blog as a family, since the kids are so intimately involved with the farm. We had to make sure they were comfortable being a part of the blog, too,” she says. Photographs of Benzakein; her husband, Chris; and their kids working in the fields fill the blog, as do pictures of gorgeous arrangements and rows of blooms in the evening sun.
