|Clockwise from the upper left: Dahlia 'Labyrinth', Abelia grandiflora 'Hopley's Variegated', Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', Zinnia 'Benary's Giant Salmon Rose', Helianthus annuus 'Garnet Star', and Tanacetum parthenium|
The Cosmos I picked up in small pots three weeks ago burst into bloom last week. I initially thought I'd use them as the focus for my second vase but attention-grabbing Dahlia 'Enchantress' crept into the mix.
|'Enchantress' isn't the largest dahlia bloom but she doesn't abide playing second fiddle|
|Back view, dominated by Abelia 'Edward Goucher' and Pandorea jasminoides|
|Top view, showing off the Cosmos|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Dahlia 'Enchantress', Abelia grandiflora 'Edward Goucher', Cosmos bininnatus 'Double Cranberry', C. 'Prom Dress', and Pandorea jasminoides|
