The Cosmos

And I bet you thought I was talking the stars…  This is a garden star for me, the lovely Cosmo, which popped up from my wildflower planting, much to my delight.  Threw in a little wildlife for you there too 🙂

The color of this flower is so vivid, and I am thankful that the camera caught it, including the beveling at the edge of the petal where it is indeed a darker orange.

To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower; Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour. ~ William Blake
