Cosmos flowers can be found next to many roads in the Free State Province.
Historians believe that the seeds of the flower, originally from Mexico, were brought in with bags of horse-feed for the English troops during the Anglo-Boer War.
I took this photo near Ventersburg in South Africa.
(I dedicate this one to my husband who never gets upset when he has to stop so that I can take a picture!)
