Love This Flower!

Los Angeles County Arboretum

 

Didn't know the name of this flower even though I have photographed it many times. Thanks to my arboretum friend, Denice, I now know it is the bud of the scabiosa flower. It is sometimes called the "pincushion" flower. It looks very different in full bloom.
