Cosmos Pink


This is a Cosmos flower. It's also sometimes called Akizakura ('秋桜' meaning 'Autumn' and 'Cherry Blossom') in Japan. They are very popular fall flowers that a lot of people grow in their gardens.

Cosmos flowers come in a variety of pink shades. But I like the dark pink Cosmos the best.

you seem to be a nature lover kind of person... but how can you not be, when you see such wonderful greenery everyday! ^-^

I love this flower, but I think is quite rare in Italy, if not at a florist's!

What a beautiful complement to the already vibrant fall colors.

I'm glad everyone seems to like cosmos'! I only took a photo upclose but seeing a field of cosmos is really beautiful too!

arabesque, yes I do love nature...maybe because i work in an office in the city all day :)

My favourite cosmos is chocolate. Do you know it?

Mo, I've never heard of it! Sounds lovely though! You'll have to post one and show it to us ;D
