All of these were within 25 feet of each other on a narrow dirt road. There were plenty of specimens to choose from and shoot. Photographed about 45 minutes before sunset.

The daisy...

Anyone know what these "daisy-like" small flowers are? They are about the size of a dime.

I love them all but don't remember the name of the little flower-I keep thinking Chamomile but that's not it-darn this oldtimer's disease! Anyway-why is the wheatgrass red in the daylily shot? Is that red or is a bleed over from the lilies?
My fave is the Q.A.Lace-I love that stuff in all it's stages! Nice shots!:D :cool: :clap: :clap:

Neat roadside botanic garden! All good but I like the last two shots best.

Thanks. I took the shot in a rather reddish sunset, so that could account for it... and maybe, too, some bleed from the flowers. I didn't enhance the color only adjusted with curves. The color, due to the intense sunset, didn't need enhancing as I sometimes do with Fred Miranda's Digital Velvia... now here, however.

These are just georgeous. I love the light (evening glow).
I want to say "feverfew" for the small white flower, but not sure.

Thanks for posting the specs. also. When I get more confident I'll try them.

Thanks, Maria... I checked the feverfew and it's close but not quite. It looks a bit like Chamomile, but it isn't that either. I'm sure it's quite common whatever it is.

Nice garden you found there, Ron.
