Wow!

WOW — Cosmos!
The first Cosmos to grow in our yard, as well as the first of the season.

The online Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word wow as "a striking success" when used as a noun and "to excite to enthusiastic admiration or approval" when used as a transitive verb. The noun has been around since the early 16th century while the verb usage was said to begin in the 1920s. Wow, huh?

Every day, I am wowed by the wow's happening on the once-the-front-lawn. Today's wows are all firsts on some sort.

WOW—Pompom Poppy!
Friend BB gave me seeds from her yard for the past three years.
This was the first year for them to pop out for me.

WOW—Sunflower!
This is the first sunflower of the season. The Husband and I first saw it this morning.

    1. Hey ya, Ann. These poppies remind me of the shaggy hats from the 1960s. Something that Audry Hepburn would wear.
