I too this photo some minutes ago in our garden. These daisies are growing wild in the back of the garden. They're simple, but so beautiful!

I'd be pleased if you told me your opinions about the photo!

Bellis perennis is a common European species of Daisy, often considered the archetypal species of that name, though many other related plants share the name; to distinguish it from other daisies, it is sometimes qualified as Common Daisy, or occasionally English daisy. It is native to western, central and northern Europe. The species is widely naturalized in North America, where it is considered an invasive weed.

It is a herbaceous plant with short creeping rhizomes and small rounded or spoon shaped evergreen leaves 2–5 cm long. The flowerheads are 2–3 cm in diameter, with white ray florets (often tipped red) and yellow disc florets; they are produced on leafless stems 2–10 cm (rarely 15 cm) tall. The lawn daisy is a dicot.

It is thought that the name "daisy" is a corruption of "day's eye", because the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning.

It is not affected by mowing and is therefore often considered a weed on lawns, though many also value the appearance of the flowers. Several cultivars and hybrids have been selected with much larger flowerheads up to 5–6 cm diameter and with light pink to purple-red ray florets.

Bellis Perennis is also a widely used homeopathic remedy.

Simple and beautiful composition. Good definition and framing. Congratulations!
Best Regards,


Szia Marci!

Egyetértek Isabel-lel, remek kép. Akár egy képeslap.
Jók a fények, részletgazdag a virágon az árnyék, a bal oldali éles virág nagyságát jól kiegyensúlyozza a két kisebb, életlen virág.


Szia Marci!

Ez remek, minden szemszögből. Csak gratulálni tudok véleményezés helyett. Üdv Laci
