Orange cosmos!

Two years ago in October 2013, Ken and I went to a neighborhood art show in the Riverside area of Wichita. At one of the homes, they had the most beautiful orange cosmos blooming! When we admired it, the owners told us to shake off as many seeds as we wanted. So we did.
We didn't get them planted until this spring. Lots of green foliage sprang up in the spot where we'd put those seeds, but we were beginning to think it was an imposter weed. Until a few days ago! Now, I want to find those dear people and tell them thank you!

It's early October and they are blooming like crazy and just stunning! We're hoping they'll reseed but we're going to save some seeds to plant next spring, just to be sure we get these beauties back next year!
