Gaudy Gazania

That is one stunning flower.

I love how Gazanias have crazy color combinations juxtaposed closely to each other. I didn't pay much attention to them until I took close up photos and realized they had lots of interesting color patterns.

There sure are a lot of bloggers from Austin but you're the first I know of from San Antone. Thanks for stopping by.

I like how photography can do that to someone. Things you don't normally notice become so clear in photo. I love your photographs and thank you for the comment on my blog.

There are a lot of Austin blogs I read most of them. I have yet to see a San Antonio blog also.

Vanilla Lotus, The eye is a remarkable instrument but so is a good camera especially when it has a macro function. I see things that I would have previously missed which makes me appreciate the structure and color of plants and flowers even more.

We thought San Antonio would be a neat place to retire (or somewhere in NM to escape the impossibly high property taxes in NJ) in a few years so I'll check your blog often to see what you can grow there. Thanks for your comments.

Hi Ruth,
I'm sure you've seen Gazanias before. It's just the lighting and isolating the flower that causes you not to recognize it. It's a fun flower to photograph. Thanks for stopping by.


Hi Deemom,
I never thought of Halloween. The lighting of the flower is a bit spooky.

I checked out your mystery plant and I think it is a Camellia. I left a comment on your blog about the ID. Thanks for the comment.
