This is one of many flowers known by the popular name, “dusty miller.” This one has tiny yellow flowers and silvery foliage, botanical name Senecio cineraria (family Asteraceae – daisy family). I loved the way the bumblebee stood out against the bright golden yellow and so took lots of photos as he boogied among the flowers.
