Wordless Wednesday

These beautiful flowers are in the middle of the medians down the main street in Niagara On The Lake. They were beautiful. I just happened to stumble upon this butterfly.





Do you know what the name of this flower is? I have not seen them here in the states.

Edited to Add: They are called Irish Eyes. (GLORIOSA Irish Eyes : RUDBECKIA HIRTA) Thank you Lori for the link. I am going to have to buy some of these seeds and plant them next year. They were beautiful!

Happy Not So Wordless Wednesday!

Ah my wife LOVES butterflies. Going to have to forward your blog to her! Great photos.

I wouldn't say may knowledge of flowers is great, but I do know most of what can be found in my region. Can't say I recognize that particular flower, though.

According to my husband who is a landscaper, your flowers are a variety of Gloriso Daisy. He says you could take them into a local greenhouse and they could tell you. Hope that helps! Your pictures are beautiful! I wish I had a good camera like that.
