Today’s Flowers: Wildflower

wild flower
I photographed this daisy-like wild flower growing near a pond across from Lee Turkey Farm in East Windsor, New Jersey. It was a prolific photography day for me.

Note: Fleabane sounds like a good possibility for what this is (thanks, Louise). I think it is a weed. One commenter thought this might be lawn daisies (didn’t look like the ones in Google images, though) and someone else thought asters (and egWow is convinced these are asters). Hmmm…

Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for featuring flower followers who share photos in a fun fashion.

Krisu says

Those wildflowers are soooo pretty! Nice shot. :)

Louise says

I'm way behind on blog visiting, so going to address several here. First, this picture is quite pretty. I believe these (as many white flowers) are difficult to capture. Yours are nice. My guess is "fleabane daisies." Just a guess, though. Many of those daisy/aster things look quite similar.

-Loved your SWF shot! Lovely colors.
-That bean salad looks delicious, and I may try it one day.
-Forgiveness. It IS hard, and you did all you can do. But I will say that although it is kind of you to ask forgiveness from the blogosphere, from when I've been here, I can't imagine why anyone would ever be offended. If they have been, I will say that sometimes people looks for reasons to be offended. Your blog is beautiful. Now the temper with the 6-year-old... I understand! And I've asked my 6-year-old daughter for forgiveness on more than one occasion!

Maria says

These wildflowers are very beautiful. They remind me of asters, but paler!

nonizamboni says

I'm very fond of these little flowers and they do grow wild here too so, I guess they could be classified weeds. I'm thinking that they should be elevated to asters. Thanks for sharing at any rate!

East Gwillimbury WOW! says

Beautiful asters. Not sure exactly which kind of aster, but they ARE asters. ;-)

judi~gmj says

Gemma says

There is always an extra sense of vibrancy in wildflowers! And your pic reflects just that! beautiful!
