One of my favourite garden flowers. Several years ago, I was given some plants by a friend who had over-sown and I was enchanted. Now I grow this annual every year.
With cosmos there are always slight variations of colour and I use watercolour to recreate them after having cut out the petals. It is lovely working with the bright colours. A bouquet of cosmos is a really good gift, the plant is a symbole of beautiful emotions such as harmony and serenity.
- 11 paper cosmos
- 3 white, 3 pale pink, 2 bright pink and 3 orange flowers
