When I saw this plant in its pot (and then on my screen) my first thought was that it was as gaily painted as a circus tent. My green fingered friend who grew it drew me to it was so excited to show me such a brightly coloured specimen and immediately in my mind it became a clown flower. Of course it’s got names – botanical, Gazania Rigens and local, Treasure Flower – but somehow I still think of it as a clown. I hope its gaudy beauty cheers your day and brings a smile, my friends. A Flower a Day #285 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
