A friend of ours had the idea of planting a large bed of the Cosmos Bipinnatus flower seed (commonly called the garden cosmos or Mexican Aster) in one of our pasture ravines.

Another friend, while helping us tame our South Pasture, mistakenly mowed it all down just before its first bloom. 😮

That made both friends a bit distraught, and we all tried to forget about it.

But then we were reseeding that pasture late yesterday, and we found an almost mystical bed of my new favorite wildflower! Though they are annuals, they re-seed the area in which they grow to create a “perennial effect” — and they bloom here from May to frost!
