My Fuchsia Cosmos are on Their Last Legs

My fuchsia cosmos are on their last legs. These flowers all self-seeded. I planted one packet of sensations mix cosmos in my front yard last year. Then when they started drying out, I simply pulled them out, tossed the stems behind the terrace wall (it's not filled in so there's a big empty space). And this is the result.

Here's a close-up. Doesn't it look so cheerful?

I never knew chrysanthemums were autumn flowers until now.
Strawberry guava tree looking all ripe with fruit.
Sundial purchased for roughly $10 at Target. Insects on clearance for 34 cents at Target. Plant holder free from people cleaning out a very messy house. I think all the elements work to make a pretty nice sundial. Now if only my nasturtiums will grow enough to wrap around the planter.
The Iceberg rose is usually a pure white. I love this slight bit of blush.
