This is kind of a tardy post; my celosia around the mailbox spot have been flowering for a week now. The thick pink one is my favorite
I also have red ones in thin plumes
and this one is kind of orange-and-pink.
Lots of volunteer seedlings have come up- some in the crack between the bed edging (which is just loose stones) and the curb.
A few of the young volunteers are almost as big as the older plants and almost ready to flower. There's some along the backyard fence too, where I scattered seed in the fall. But none of the plants I started indoors are big and impressive like last year- they are barely a foot high. It must have been the timing.
