#bestofspring 2019 Just wish I knew which variety this one is, but a search through the seed selections at the GC tomorrow should help 😊😊♥️♥️

I've got too many pink mix Cosmos so, it's really nice to see a red ish one. They're lasting a long time; who needs Sarah Raven for Cosmos or anything for that matter. Give me good old Wilko or others any day 😊😊❤❤

@jeatacake Thank you ☺☺yes I'm surprised too they're doing very well. I'm sorry about yours was it a heavy frost or are Cosmos suseptible to the slightest frost? I can't remember from last year. I'm just wondering if gyo might be hardier than bought? Of course I'm not saying yours were bought, perish the thought! Ooh I say that ryhmes ☺☺I'll drop you an e mail Jeff 💕

You're a poet & didn't know it!😁👍 Seed grown - yes, but frost does not discriminate! My dahluas were well blackened & runner beans were pretty yucky too from what could only have been a fairly hard frost 😢 Dug up the roots on Sunday for next year. 😊

Although I am neither of those things, thank you! 😃 It's hot & hectic so far, but good flights, arriving on time. I heard the weather was bad, after a very mini heatwave. Torties will be getting ready for winter I reckon! Been looking at a few condos here today, but nothing definate yet, nor any fancy plants worth photographing, at least not in downtown Bangkok. I'll wait until I'm out in the country 👍😊

Ohh my goodness you're in Bangkok!! Amazing. You're a Globetrotter 😃I discovered today that Coco likes porridge 😃and Millie does too. I tried her with it yesterday she really likes it. Yes it was the miniest heatwave on record!! Ooh I look forward to some interesting photos of plants and other things. Beware of those Lady Boys of Bangkok won't you ☺☺
