I took a photo of this flower in September, and I would love to grow it in my garden. It looks a lot like gaillardia, but those don’t seem to have stripes like this flower. I believe it’s a gazania (thank you, Sara!) in the asteraceae family.

beautiful photo 🙂
have a nice week!
Your flower truly stands out against it’s striking shadow. Lovely.
What a lovely composition! Well-done.
I agree, the flower is wonderful. I love the soft yellow with the red stripes very much.
Thanks for sharing!
Just like little sun. 😉
Maybe a gazania? Not sure of the spelling. They are similar to gaillardia, I think. In any case, a lovely photo of a charming flower, happy in the sunlight. Plus a great shadow you could post for Shadow Shot Sunday also, at http://heyharriet.blogspot.com/
It love how the flowers sits on the wood. Nice composition.
Those are great colors on that flower, daisy family for sure!

A very beautiful flower, and also a beautiful shadow.
Sweet sweet shadow.
I love how the red stripes crossed the yellow petals. Nice.
Oh, Gazanieas are so happy and bright and will grow in desert conditions.
I like the perspective with the shadows and textures…so beautiful.
Yes, it definitely is a gazania.
It is beautiful! I wouldn’t mind planting some of them myself.
Love the shadow.
OK…now I’m really Jones-in’ for Spring, snowed all day today…sooo not fair!

Greetings from Portugal!!!
Leora: That is one beautiful flower, I would like that color in my garden.
Gazanias are just great here because they grow anywhere and don’t need much water. I liked the stripes in this gazania.
What perfect stripes! and I like the odd number of petals a la Fibonacci. Happy Monday!
