Ding-ding-ding.... we have a winner!

OK, so there wasn't a contest.  But an anonymous commenter said, "Looks like cosmos," and from the images I found by way of Google, I do believe that's what my mystery plant is!

Thank you, Mysterious Person.  This is why I allow anonymous comments.  

The only thing that does not ring true is this, since mine are eight feet tall:   "Cosmos give you a big bang for your buck. Growing carefree from seed, these annuals (meaning they grow just one year) fill a flowerbed with color and are great cut flowers. Cosmos grow anywhere from 1 foot to 3 feet high, depending on the variety."

I looks kind of like the plant I can see two doors down from ours. Thing is it is there every fall. Looks pretty from here. Helen

Your flowers look orange on my computer. I think cosmos only come in pinks and white.
