Chocolate in the Garden!

I haven’t really got out in the garden much. but have spent the week admiring the garden from the kitchen window as it flourishes.

I’ve still been carrying out my daily inspection and everything is looking rosey. Everyday something new seems to appear. The Chocolate Cosmos has just come into flower and much to my surprise it really does smell chocolatey.

 

Yet again I have been amazed with the brochure delivering exactly what it says it will. The brochure states that it has a mouth watering vanilla and hot chocolate scent and it really does have this delicious smell. It played havoc with my senses as I really didn’t think it could possibly smell as good as it looks. The flower is a beautiful chocolate brown and is a really pleasant addition to my garden.

 

I wasn’t expecting the Chocolate Cosmos to flower just yet but as I only have one bud open I expect the rest will follow later on. The heatwave of last week has probably confused it into thinking that it is late summer as opposed to early summer.
