I've never had cosmos in my garden before and I don't know why! They're gorgeous and so easy to grow. I only planted four this spring, just to see how they'd do. It tends to get very windy around here and even though I planted them by a fence, I wasn't sure how they'd manage getting battered about. They're doing just great. I'm already planning to plant more, lots more, next spring.
The bees love them too! This little guy was busily going from flower to flower as I snapped away. A few actually turned out. :)
We had a really lovely Canada Day weekend. The weather was nice, not raining (for a change) or so muggy that you feel like you're in a sauna! We were able to spend most of the weekend out in the garden and are actually making some progress. Finally. This past weekend was another story. Wet, hot and humid. And there are armies of mosquitoes are out there, ready to attack the minute you step out the door.
I also saw my oncologist last Wednesday. Physical exam revealed no tumours. He was pretty confident that I was in remission. A follow up appointment was scheduled for six months but my blood work hadn't come back yet. My nurse assured me she'd call later that day. We waited and waited. No phone call. Finally she called just before noon on Thursday. Not good. My CA125 was 1455! Way, way too high. It should be well below 35. Back to the cancer centre Friday to have the test repeated in case it was a false positive. I should get the results today or tomorrow. I'm trying not to worry.
See you soon!
