It's currently mid-winter in Australia and despite a few frosts out on the street front, our yard is still looking mostly green with a few bright spots of colour. The plants aren't growing as quickly which is a good thing when it comes to weeds. The photo above was taken this afternoon, others are from the last few days.
These gorgeous Golden Dollar flowers brighten our yard each winter, most with five petals, a few with just three.

Another photo from this afternoon, these Australian straw/paper/everlasting daisies only open on sunny days. They sure do make the yard brighter, especially during winter!
One of my all-time favourite posts follows the daily opening and closing of a younger daisy with photos taken each hour - I think you will enjoy it too. :)
