Humble Daisy – my native plant photo

The folks at Gardening Gone Wild have come up with a new monthly competition – Picture This.  This month it is a photo of a native plant in your garden or the surrounding landscape.

So here is my contribution – the humble Daisy. 

I did some research on native plants for the area of the UK I live in and whilst there were several that I have in my garden they aren’t in flower at the moment or have just gone over.  Examples are Primroses, Bluebells (almost in flower), Columbines, Foxgloves.  I found this site very interesting for checking on what is native for your area.

For more photos of native plants all of  which will be more stunning than my humble daisy visit Gardening Gone Wild

  1. Humble yes but I think a daisy is what comes to the mind’s eye when people think of a flower. (at least it does for me) It’s time for a ‘Plain Jane’ to go home with an award.

  2. I love daisies and am happy to see them in the lawn, I am hoping to get more flowers into the small amount of grass that I have left but daisies will always be The lawn flower for me.

    Best wishes Sylvia

  3. let’s defy the snobbishness that say daisies are humble and common. They are reliable and cheerful, and look stunning in a large group like in the photo.

  4. Well the contest is done and results posted over at GGW early next week. Thanks for your entry and I am giving each photo bit of constructive criticism.
    Your humble daisy is a classic wildflower for UK and your low angle is nice but we wanted to see the native in a garden setting
