FOCUS FRIDAY: BROWN


On our walk through
Madison's 
OLBRICH BOTANICAL GARDENS
a few weeks ago,
Emily 
was
ANXIOUS
to find
the brown flower
that was in 
BLOOM.

Chocolate Cosmos
aka
COSMOS ASTROSANGUINEUS.

It actually 
smells like
DARK CHOCOLATE.

yum

All you need is love. 
But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.

  1. Really? It smells like chocolate? It would be nice to see a flower like that. I saw on a cooking competition a herb that tastes like chocolate. Nature has the power to surprise.

  5. Amen to needing a bit of chocolate now and then--for me it's more like a lot of now and not so much then. The brown cosmos is very pretty!
