Our Shasta Daisies (Leucanthemum × superbum) have just come into full bloom. One of my all time favourite flowers. They are great at attracting insects like this Thread-waisted Wasp.
On the first day of Summer, everywhere we went there was Daisies. All wildflowers, all over! I love Dasies!
No, we didn’t import it! If fact I don’t know from where it came! Considered to be an evasive plant in places, this is Mountain Knapweed. It is very prolific and turns up everywhere. Regardless I think the flowers are quite pretty, so I’ll give it it’s due!
I don’t remember the names of these two different flowers. I know I should! But I was taken with the light from the sun from the west.
Our Empress Tree in the backyard is just full of these flowers right now. We really enjooy it’s display in Spring. It will soon be full of huge green leaves.
