A delightful crop of a gazetted weed in South Australia. On the other hand, they are so pretty.

Sorry I have not been around for a while, we are on the road in Victoria and NSW and not often in internet range. I can put up a post now and again but visiting is rather restricted.

The hill side looks great - nice photo. (I didn't know they, I'm guessing African Daisies, were a significant weed).

Dianne said...

Kevin they are Gazania Daisies and yes! they are considered a potential environmental weed in South Australia - I think they brighten up the roadside!

great shot with autumn colours. It is amazing that the Gazania is or has become a weed,

Craig said...

Lovely photo. I always rather liked gazanias when we lived in California but I can see why they aren't well liked as they are rather invasive.

Nice photo!

Jacob said...

These flowers are so gorgeous! The roadway looks similar to some of our Florida roads in spring...although I do believe your flowers are more colorful

Your header photo is to die for!

Ann said...

Pretty. Didn't know they were weeds.

Weeds or no, they look magnificent! Especially so, as they're flowering out of season, right?

Wow, this photo definitely looks better viewed large than the little thumbnail on my blogroll. Really well composed, Dianne.

Dianne said...

Red Nomad Oz:- usually spring/summer flowering but not unusual to continue into early autumn.

Like a lot of flowering "weeds" they look lovely. I am so fond of things like dandelions that people fuss about - that splash of colour is always a welcome sight. And how clever and persistent they are - you have to admire their tenacity as well as their beauty.

I'm old enough to remember blackberry bushes on that road. They covered the Adelaide Hills and we went out blackberry picking every year in the hills with half the population of Adelaide, carting our spoils home to make pies and jam. But they were declared weeds as well. Who decides these things?
