Gazanian Glory

The petals of the Gazania draw you in, willingly or unwillingly, until you are saturated with the intensity of the central yellow core. It feels a bit like looking at a molten sun. Better squint.
Can you imagine if this was bigger than you?
I can totally understand the attraction felt by insects.


  1. That's a cool looking flower you got there, Cathy. It was good talking to you at the get together today.

  2. Hi Katina, It was nice to meet you too. And yes, I always end up buying some floral eye-candy in the spring, before the garden has had a chance to really fluff out...
