Another Yellow Osteospermum

A friend had asked me if the little center “flowers” on the yellow osteospermum I posted a while back opened up eventually. I was fairly sure they did, but today I received verification. Clearly the flower really fades as it ages, though: the earlier one was a very bright yellow, and I saw another young flower next to this one and it, too, was a lovely bright yellow. Ah well, we all fade ….

First Shot

The camera didn’t get much use today: I did take an over 6 mile walk, but it began to sprinkle so it ended up in my backpack (which has an attached rain cover, thankfully). I do wish I’d spent more time with these water drops, but this’ll have to do. Maybe I’ll go back tomorrow.
