Today's Flowers - Daisies

6 Nov 08



The advantage of having a garden is you get to grow plants and flowers abundantly. Unlike in a balcony or terrace, you have a limited space for them. This is what I love in the kids' kindergarten. They have a small garden where the kids could play, and flowers until now are blooming plentifully.



Daisies are some of the abundant flowers there, here are beautifully colored orange and pink. Daisies are from the family Asteraceae which comprises more than 1,600 genera and 23,000 species. Asteraceae are cosmopolitan, but most common in the temperate regions and tropical mountains.

Asteraceae are most usually herbs, but some shrubs, trees and climbers do exist. They are generally easy to distinguish, mainly because of their characteristic inflorescence and many shared apomorphies.

The leaves and the stems very often contain secretory canals with resin or latex (particularly common among the Cichorioideae). The leaves can be alternate, opposite, or whorled. They may be simple, but are often deeply lobed or otherwise incised, often conduplicate or revolute. The margins can be entire or dentate.

  12. These are beautiful and vivid colors. In the flower shops here they have blue ones and green ones which we suspect they dip in dye to get that shade.

  15. Daisies in vibrant colours catch the eyes and are the first in spring to make a daisy chain. Mine are flowering now big white ones with deep yellow centres, I love them. Thank you for stopping by my TF.
