Here’s a charming little duo of annuals that’d be super-easy to recreate. It’s simply cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus cvs.) and gomphrena (Gomphrena cvs.), both easy to either start from seed or buy in the garden center. Girly and cute, eh? This was taken at the Toledo Botanical Garden a few years ago. I was visiting my sister in southern Michigan at the time (hi Thea!!), and got an urge to drive an hour south to check this garden out. I wasn’t disappointed. TBG is really nice – go visit!!
