White Spoon Osteospermum

23 03 2009

This is an Osteospermum, also called African Daisy, Cape Daisy or Spoon Daisy (because of the spoon-shaped ray florets). I believe this might be the cultivar ‘William.’

i’ve never seen a flower so unqiue
i think the blue & organe go beautifully together, even if they are opposite on the colour wheel 🙂

Gorgeous flower. And you captured it so well. The whites are perfect here. I will be heading back down to Longwood with our local photo club next month. This month’s group shoot was to a greenhouse. I started posted a couple of shots over on my blog. Glad to see you back and feeling better. I was wondering where you got to.

Gorgeous photo. I went up to Longwood last week and photographed the Longwood Hybrid Cineraria. Thanks for the heads up on where to find them.

I also photographed the Blue Poppies last week — if you get a chance to see them — I think you’ll really like them.

Nice blog!
You have a lot of nice photos of flowers, and not only.

This is great photo. Good contrast, pretty colours. What I don’t like, if I may, is the placement of the flower in the frame. Putting it in the upper half, while leaving the down side empty makes it seem unstable. Maybe you can try another crop.
But that’s just me.. 😛 It’s a nice photo anyway.

I can’t wait to see more from you.
