Colors on Monday-Orange you glad it's Monday?

If you haven't guessed yet, today's color is orange. If you want to join in this meme just click on my Colors on Monday sidebar.
This is the first year I have planted Cosmos in my flower bed. I grew this baby from seed and am so happy I did. Most of the time you see pink/rose and white cosmos. This one is a little more orange than it shows in the pic.

Hope everyone has a great Monday and I look forward to seeing other "orange" pics.

I have this same cosmos in my garden, and it's definitely a winner! If it's the same variety I have, you'll find it re-seeds itself, so you won't even have to plant more next year, Susie.

Your title reminds me an old knock-knock joke that makes my grandson laugh:)

It's neat to see our little seeds grow!

Hi Susie :)
That flower is screaming orange! Very pretty and job well done nurturing it.

Orange certainly is not a colour I would expect to see in a cosmos flower. Looks lovely.

Hi Susie! Love your Orange Cosmos.
One of my 'green thumb sisters' grew them this year, too. She always has a cheery bouquet of them in her kitchen when I visit.

Beautiful orange flower! The only flowers I have are roses and they are fairly easy to care for since I do not have a green thumb!

I had no idea that cosmos comes in orange! It looks like beautiful.

The Cosmos is a beautiful orange. And, yes, I'm glad it's Monday.

Lovely Orange. It was so cool to hear one of my old favorites,Jean-Luc Ponty playing while perusing your blog! Have a great week.

Oh..I just read this (in MG class on mondays) and asked if you grew cosmos in a comment back to you on my blog! How ironic--yes, you do grow cosmos and you grow them well. This is a beautiful flower! Hope you do consider more wildflowers! :)

I love Orange Cosmos, mine didn't reseed this year. :(

I'm not a huge fan of orange, or cosmos, but I can see that combination would be an eye catcher in the garden!

I love Cosmos, and your orange makes me smile. For some reason, the Cosmos didn't reseed this year in my garden, and it is sorely missed. I love Orange flowers in the garden--makes me think of fall--and I am so ready for the seasons to change and the weather to cool down.
