What a great image ..
Yes to the comments! Plus,
not knowing much about flowers, I found two interesting bits – (1) this one is named after Helen of Troy; (2). “A number of these species have the common name sneezeweed. . .”!!
BUT, not to worry, the name is “. . . based on the former use of their dried leaves in making snuff. It was inhaled to cause sneezing that would supposedly rid the body of evil spirits.” (wiki)
Strange, how we try to use beauty.

Wonderful flower facts
I love unusual flowers! Very awesome photo my friend! Hugz Lisa and Bear
Without my coffee and full attention, I read your title as “Sweet Helium,” and saw a wonderfully crazy balloon. Clearly, even a flower can help our imagination take flight.
Ha! Sweet Helium works too!
So amazing to see the close up. Thank you for all your beautiful photos and words each day. I don’t respond to each but I look and enjoy. I do so appreciate your transmissions.
Thank you Gretchen.
Beautiful shot 🙂
Very beautiful love all the colors.
The texture and colors–scrumptious.
I love this playful one, my friend. 🙂 ❤
Good shot! An unusual flower. Size?
about the size of a silver dollar
as the flower gets older it creates that lovely design in the center
when it first blooms the center is just dark brown
Such a sweet poem and photo!
