[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These pink and white daisy-like flowers are an exotic invader in South Africa. It is apparantly native to Mexico (Bidens formosa). A beauftiful sight when they flower en-mass next to farmroads like this one and highways during the autumn months. One of the vernacular names are "Chicken Eyes"

Hi Wim. Lovely picture of cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus). It really looks spectacular as it blooms so lushly next to the road. Did you know that kosmos comes from the Greek, meaning beautiful. :-) Regards, Irmgard
