Beautiful...such a vivid, warm yellow. You say "false" sunflower? --what is it then, just 'daisy'? Inquiring minds wanna know.

Happy wordless

Thanks, Anni.

I think it is called 'false' is that it resembles the more traditional sunflower but has distinct differences like being perennial. It is its own species but also related on the botanical family level. Both are in the Compositae (Daisy) family.

Absolutely stunning, especially with the slightly off-center crop.

I'm partial to Daisies or all colors and this is breath taking. Also love the black and white Daisy below.

Just beautiful! Good thing we're not neighbors, I might be tempted to come over and 'borrow' some of your flowers. :)
