"November" flower . . .Osteospermum


Walking back from the Kiggins House re-model today, I discovered these flowers still blooming. They are natural art at its finest! If someone knows the name for them, please let me know. You definitely want to click on this one to see how pretty it is!

Thanks to the person who left a comment with no name, I have the name of this gorgeous flower.

I wonder if it could be this--"Osteospermum"? Looks quite similar. Very interesting-looking!

From what I've read, they call those kinds of petals spoon petals, and the common name for the flower is African Daisy.

I think there are many kinds of African Daisies, and some do not have the spoon petals.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
