flower seedlings

I haven't done very well with seed-starting, this year. Been kinda scatter-brained so I keep making mistakes, like putting the seedling trays outside too soon in the coldframe, and the poor baby plants didn't like it.

That's why these Tithonias (Mexican sunflower) have uneven edges on some of their leaves- they started getting withered edges from the cold. I brought them back into the windowsill and they recovered quickly enough. They're my best-growing seedlings so far!
I also have some Cosmos going
and I think these are the pink ones- different shape, or just further growth on the leaves?
and Marigolds, but not enough. Never enough Marigolds! Must plant more.
