|Purple Cosmos with Bee|
This Purple Cosmos is another flower found in a side garden in Rockport, MA. The bee was an added surprise when I saw it though my lens.
Cosmos are in the Aster family and are native to Mexico. They are popular garden flowers here in the states. They are herbaceous perennial plants with many different species and colors. There are also many hybrids and cultivars. I particularly like this species and the color.
