Wonderful World of . . .flowers

Everyone should take time to Stop and Smell the Roses, um, Dill Weed.

Dill is really an edible herb and not a flower. But, if you let it go to seed, it is a pretty delicate blossom of yellow yumminess, plus the aroma that comes off this plant whenever you brush up against it, is sinfully delicious
Chocolate Cosmos is pretty but the thing I really like about this flower is the aroma. Yep, you guessed it: chocolate. Like candy for the eyes and nose, these little buds make you want to eat them right up. A great aroma therapy for a woman at that certain time of the month--and no needless calories ;)
Balloon Flowers
I think you can see why. The little blossoms billow up like a puffed up ball of air, right before they open into the beautiful flowers they are. I like to watch all the stages.
