Gazania:   
    
    
   
Godetia (Clarkia amoena), also known as farewell-to-spring:

   
 Since they live in the same planter, I thought they should share a post.

  1. Love the Gazanias. Another South African indigenous flower. I have all these colours and then some. I took to collecting seed a while back and have been planting the little ”sproutlings ” ever since.
    I am soon to plant out around 100 new ones.

        • The first one – it’s still there in my pics – has gone all wilted and soft at the stem. And mouldy. I didn’t take it off, but I don’t think it was pollinated at all. Probably freaked the local critters out and they had no idea how to have inter-species sex with it!

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
