Oh, those cosmos!

Just look at those half-dead cosmos. WHAT an eyesore.
'Bright Lights' cosmos, end of season

Why, there's hardly a blossom on those sad stems.

Why on earth don't they cut them down already?
Honey bee on cosmos

Every year, we're "treated" to this, erm, "display."

There's no purpose to keeping those ugly things standing that I can see.

I mean, they're right there, next to their patio. Do they not see the problem here?
'Bright Lights' cosmos

Isn't there something in the deed restrictions against this sort of thing?
'Bright Lights' cosmos

I'm thinking they're just too darn lazy to deal with this problem.

No purpose, no reason, and no excuse. Ugh.
Cosmos seed heads

Sigh. Maybe we should go over and say something. Or build a tall fence.

  1. Oh I can see beauty in everyone of these photos..go over and grab a few seeds for yourself.

  2. Oh, yes indeed, Caroline! Give me some of that eyesore any day.

    I really love that orange against your blue house. Your pics show the beauty of not only the flowers in their prime but the faded and gone-to-seed ones as well.
