Cosmos gently blowing in the breeze in early Autumn light always reminds me of being tucked up in the north of Mallorca, meandering through the market in the old square of Pollenca old town. A most delightful old town.
I would gather up fresh vegetables gently packed into a locally made basket and fill my arms with a flowing bunch of Cosmos in every shade of pink and creamy whites from the flower lady. All grown in her little yard. I would then stop and have a coffee and a slice of the the most delicious lemon tart, watching the world go by before wandering through the quaint narrow old streets to the villa we were staying at. My vegetables neatly packed away to be used for some long and delicious lunches under the almond trees in the orchard, I would then place a beautiful pottery jug bought from a local ceramicist on the dining table and fill with the frondy, dreamy Cosmos.
Hoping for a warm afternoon soon, where I can set a table for lunch outside, and cut some of my own Cosmos for the table which will be placed into a beautiful jug made by Pauline of sea drift pottery.
And, I will be hoping for some lovely dappled light to photograph...
