A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 20

Here’s the 20th  installment of “A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday.” If you’d like, you can view all the earlier Sunday flower images/posts on this page.

I was really tired yesterday evening, as I remembered I needed to find a flower to post for today. I looked through some photos, and my eye just stopped on this photo; it seemed soft and sweet and a bit comforting, and I guess I wanted that. (:

So today we have these daisy type flowers (anyone know their name?) that were planted in a pot around Santa Fe. I found them at the beginning of October, on my walk over to the wonderful Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. I tried my best to capture them the way I saw them — beautiful each one, but always a part of the group.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. Love the strong colors! Great photo. http://madrilicious.com

  2. very pretty!

  3. Beautiful capture. I wish I could tell you their name but I can’t. However, I found this regarding daisies and thought I’d share it: “The name of the purple daisy comes from ‘daes age’, which is an Anglo-Saxon term meaning ‘day’s eye’. The purple daisy represents innocence, royal beauty, being associated with the fifth wedding anniversary. It is a flower representing a love that conquers all.”

  4. Beautiful colour.

  16. I like how you describe letting your eyes scan over the photos and taking note of where they stop. It’s kind of like letting your heart pick the day’s photo instead of your head.
