African Daises (of course you knew that) are one of my favourite subjects. I like yours.

Thanks Cam . I have no clue what they are, really... they're all pretty (insert color here) flowers to me !

one of my favorite activities this time of year is to go down to a garden center with my camera and snap away !

Another one from such a visit, from last week:



Maybe you can identify this one as well ? The petals have a weird hard-plastic texture (no, they're not plastic flowers )

Rusty,

Your yellow flower may be the Australian Helichrysum bracteata - the Golden Everlasting Daisy.

This image is the result of the 10th attemt to get the pictures I wanted. All previous attemps where hampered when the wind decided to blow more of the Dandelion away.
