This August, I saw this beautiful flower in Lubec, Maine. A bee was really enjoying it too! I would love to know what it is.

Looks like it could possibly be Impatiens glandulifera
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree with the name of the plant, but I would like to know if it was growing wild or cultivated? Smiling
