Fire Lily

 My fire lily is flowering its little heart out at the moment and I love it.  I think even more than daisies.  The one very strange thing about fire lilies is they have six stamens and six petals.  I am sure I read somewhere that plants only liked odd numbers. As in five or seven petals.  Tomorrow I will have to look closer around the garden, to see if that is true for other plants.  That is if they have not all died in this very, very dry summer.

First Daisy of 2013

 Here it is the first daisy of 2013.  The last few months of 2012 where so busy with no time to sit and watch the daisies.  I hope that 2013 is a little less frantic.
