Sunny Centres.


Whether adorning the roadside, a piece of wasteland, a hillside meadow or along field edges the typical grassland plant Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) puts on a good show through the summer months with its sunny centre providing a welcome feast for all our pollinating insects. In the evening light its blooms appear to glow hence its common names of 'Moon Daisy' and 'Moonpenny'. FAB.

  5. Daisies were my mother's favorite flower and I'm sure it was because they, with their bright and cheery yellow centers, are a happy flower.
    Very pretty photo, Frank.
