These are the last of the pot marigold Oopsy Daisy flowers as there are no more buds showing and the leaves are now steadily dying back further down.
As I mentioned last month I’ve been looking for a different variety to try next next year and have now found a proper dwarf variety which only grows to 6 in/15 cm. Details about these next month.
I haven’t sown any Winter Sun, which I also mentioned last month, as I haven’t been able to find where I put the seeds despite looking a few times.
The cosmos Sonata White continue to flower, and there’s still a few more buds showing.
I only realised recently that these are fragrant, which given my poor sense of smell I was surprised to scent.
Further to my post This year the sunflowers… the sunflower Musicbox lasted over two weeks, and I’m going to see if I can save any of the seeds.
I was pleased to see a further three flower buds appear, two of which I’ve since pinched out in the hope that the remaining one will flower.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
