Flowers for my friends...

Since, I have not been around blogville much recently... and missing all my OhSoexceptional friends out there...because I have had to spend OhSomuch time working in my yard...conquering the 'blasted vines' and working on my flower beds...I thought I would share the fruits of my labor. And at the same time share two of my interests...gardening and photography. I recently bought a new camera and experimented with it...by taking pictures of flowers in my garden.
So for my next few posts I thought I'd share the fruits of my labor...via the pictures I took...along with tid-bits of information about the flowers depicted {along the way I'll probably through in my usual 'muck'}...

Sooo...without further ado...The first in a series of...

This one is a picture of an African Daisy {Dimorphotheca aurantiaca...Asteraceae} A hardy, spreading annual with daisy-like flowers... native of South Africa...{{I usually do not buy annuals...I stick to perineal’s ..but I love purple flowers}}...anyway dependant upon your zone {for plants} some annuals will re-bloom {{thought I'd give these a shot}}

A lot of plants have a meaning or signify something...the most widely know is the meaning/significance of the rose...

The Daisy: Innocence; Youthful beauty; Cheerfulness; Loyal Love; I will think about it...different daisies also have different meanings just like the rose...i.e. a Gerbera daisy means 'thought of absent friends'...it is a shame I don't have those blooming in my garden...they would 'suit' this post to a 'T'

OhSospecial wishes for health, happiness and love to you all!![/size
