@alan1111 thank you Alan 😀 I didn’t even notice them until I looked back at the photo 😂 was taking a picture of another flower on this plant and these were in the background 😜

@pelly I like them best when they’re at the ‘alien’ stage 😉 they look properly like balloons for such a short time 🎈

@gjones did you get the blue one? They’re amazing flowers at every stage. Just love how all the petals are joined, looking like a popped balloon even when it’s open 😅

Yes I bought the blue one but would like to purchase the pink variety next year. I used to have the tall variety (about 3’ tall) but they always needed staking so I dug those out and purchased the shorter variety😊

@jeatacake really is fascinating, I love herbaceous perennials for this part! To go from bare soil to a fully grown plant, it’s pretty amazing 🤩

@kez001uk I just love purple flowers and soft pink too. Like all of them but those are my favorite. Oops I forgot the blood red Celosia. That’s right up there too. There’s really no garden color I dislike. 😁 🥀🌺🌸🌹🌼🌻💐

@tkept soft pinks and purples are gorgeous together 💕💜 and celosia is just an amazing plant in any colour 😍 I’m with you all the way! There’s a place for almost anything in our gardens ☺️ brings so much joy getting to look out at the colours nature creates 🌈
