If at first you don't succeed, try, try again?

You know it's Thursday, right? I was hoping for some This and That...I am going to go stomp off now.

Get yo ass in gear, lady.

Deb said...

...but doesn't it add some nice green texture to your patio...
And I agree with Marlene...try again!

Magpie said...

Hmm. You sure that isn't dill?

Daryl said...

Too much rain has turned them into mutants....

Trisha said...

Hmmmmm. Maybe they take a few years to bloom? At least the plant itself seems to be healthy!

Flea said...

What the heck? I love the petals.

Gin said...

Why does it just look like a weed? Ha, ha.

The Incredible Woody said...

I thought it was really big carrots:)

Caution Flag said...

And I thought it was a mutated corn stalk.

Keetha said...

Hey, at least you attempted it, which is more than I can say.

I killed an aloe vera plant once, just saying.

Ooops!

These Nine Acres said...

Hmmmm...not a green thumb myself, so no advice from here :0(

Marsha said...

I can't say I've seen that before. Interesting.

Angel Mama said...

I thought I was going to read about drinks. HEHE That's how green my thumb is -- NOT!! Hey, at least you tried - are they perinneal? If so, see what happens next year...

Deb in Spain said...

Must admit, I was pulling out the bottle of vodka as I clicked on your site... next time???

I KNOW...you were trying for just a "filler" for your arrangements, and that's a beautiful filler! :)

Looks like dill or fennel?

Grandma J said...

That looks like my target shrubbery.

Carol said...

I did a double take walking down a shady road last week, the cosmos were really reaching for the sun, there were a couple 6 feet tall.

Sassy said...

My mom always had cosmos when I was growing up I love this little flower....I ♥ you....thinking about you always...

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

It looks like wild asparagus that's gone to seed, the green part anyway. I wouldn't view it as a failure, view it as an adventure.

TSannie said...

It's been a bizarre garden year.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

I'm with noblepig - looks like somebody's been stepping out with the dill weed after the lights go out...

Mango Girl said...

It's all from the global warming, you know?!

Suz Broughton said...

Don't give up! Cosmos are one of my favorite flowers. Try again next year.

Egghead said...

How weird. It looks like a cross between a cosmos and dill. Kind of cool looking flowers though.
