I was thinking the same thing. It's just what I want.

That's very pretty, Enrico.

Rosie, if you leave the dead flowers on the plant you will get plenty of seed. They often self sow, too. I usually leave the last lot of flowers to supply seed for the next sowing.

Now that looks really cool! 8) Just love the way that cosmos engulfs things in such a delicate way... Looks like you're getting a lovely big green surround in the background too, enrico. :D
