2011/281: Drought Resistant

On my recent “photo walk” with Sara, we found these little daisies (or whatever they are) growing in the field at her school. They didn’t seem to mind the heat and drought. Don’t let the little patch of green grass fool you!

Did you know that when you pick these little daisies-or-whatever-they-are, their petals turn a pale purple?

  1. Some kind of daisy for sure! Were you so excited to find them?

    • Thanks… yeah, they’re pretty much the only thing blooming around here right now.

  2. They are pretty little things. They look like they could be some type of aster which tend to flourish this time of year in my neck of the woods (especially when it’s been dry). I’m not sure if you have them down your way or not.

  3. I think Robin is right; perhaps a species of aster. Sure are pretty!

    I watched the Rangers’ game last night and it looked like a monsoon. Did you get rain, too?

  5. Thanks everyone.
    Becky, we got some rain late yesterday evening (most of it was west of us) and then it rained pretty good early this morning. Hard to tell from the kitchen window, how much is in the rain gauge, but I’m guessing about 3/4 inch.

  6. I’ve been seeing bunches of white flowers in various sizes like yours recently. Aster seems like a good guess. Nice to see something blooming!

  7. they are sweet. I think Asters are a good guess, too. At least those are one of the few flowers that remain blooming around here. Wishing rain for you…
