Flower of the Day – April 23, 2017 – Gazania

Cee’s Flower of the Day – April 23, 2017 – Daffodils

 

Been a while since i posted much, but i’m back… although maybe with a little bit better life/blogging balance 😉

I love the beauty of all flowers but there is something about the magnificent artistry of Gazanias, the way some appear to have been painted rather than grown, that makes them high on my list of favourites. 🙂

    1. Well spotted there! I was looking up gazania on Google and spotted (pardon the pun) a pic identical to this flower – with the exception of the dots! The white spots look like little white flame tips to me. I’m wondering how and why the two flowers would be identical except for this small and seemingly unnecessary variation? I also like the way the petals seem to have been painted that way by brushstrokes. Truly a Work of Art. These flowers also just adore the sun – the hotter the better. if a taller plant/tree shades them they close until the full sun hits them and then close again at night.

      Thanks for dropping by 🙂

      love.
