Cosmos are one of those old fashioned summer delights-
like hand carved carousels, ice cream parlors,
and picnic baskets lined with gingham...
And just a glimpse of them and their lacy foliage, sprinkled about a jumbled cottage garden,
takes me back to those carefree moments
that summer day dreams are made of!!
On this very modern, yet beautifully warm and sunny day, I had just such a sighting of those old fashioned darlings!!
Dainty and long legged pink cosmos, with their out-of-this-world beauty and charm, proved an irresistible lure for me...
And the dozens of dazzling butterflies that fluttered about the Santa Monica community gardens seeming equally lured=)!!
