Chocolate cosmos

I bought a pot of these flowers to plant in my garden- hopefully the wallabies won't eat them! They are almost black in real life.
I am very excited today, my husband came home and gave me an early birthday present! The Canon 10-22mm zoom lens!!! very unexpected, I can't wait to have a play with it. So lovely of him- the perfect present, I am very lucky.
Wow! Such an unusual flower!

@nyusha it is isn't it- being in B&W doesn't really change it much either!

It is called a chocolate cosmos. I think a cosmos is a pretty well known flower, but this colour is unusual :) they are usually in purples, pinks and whites, some of them are fluffy with petals.

A flower that smells like chocolate?!!! I'd probably gain weight just sniffing it! (Do wallabies like chocolate?) This is simply beautiful! What a great birthday gift you received! I know we're going to enjoy the results here on 365!
