Are any words needful....I think not.

I just love watching this sequence! Another of our Australian native everlasting daisies.
If you are interested you can learn more about these fascinating flowers and see a similar sequence showing the hourly opening of three more mature daisies and also a seven week sequence following the development of a single everlasting daisy. Have a lovely day!

I have absolutely fallen in love with your work, but I think I told you that last week. These progressions are the most stunning and wonderful for the flower lover imaginable. You are certainly an expert and the best at what you do. I need to take the time and just go back through you blog entry by entry. It is going to be a thrill for me. Genie
