African Daisy Fence


At the moment I am working a lot in my garden. We practically didn't have any kind of winter but have been having spring-like weather since November. It has confused the garden - everything is blooming way early; some plants I didn't cut back to the ground because there were still so many flowers that I didn't dare to trim them. Now they have grown new growth and I don't dare to cut them either. What a dilemma. I know, all of you in the freezing North are probably laughing your heads off, and rightly so.


The African Daisies are flowering like crazy and are growing through our redwood fence that we built a year ago. This is exactly the look I had in mind when we started out with our fence. It makes me so happy and I have heard from many passers by that they enjoy it, too.

Gardening just makes me happy.


I am linking up with Theresa's Good Fences over at the Run A Round Ranch.

These are gorgeous flowers! How blessed you are to have so many in bloom right now but it does make one wonder what summer will bring to your area. Hopefully there will still be flowers to bloom!

On the other side of the world my Cape daisies are also blooming. And I too am wrestling with things in the garden blooming too early. Some of my spring bulbs are in flower before autumn is a month old.

Beautiful! The vivid pink against the fence is lovely. I'm not laughing - just jealous - sigh... Thank you for sharing!

These are one of my favourite garden plants and I love the stripes of the petals, the darker reverse and the centres are exquisite. In England we call them Livingstone Daisies but I suppose there's an African link there with Livingstone the explorer discovering the source of the Nile!
Gorgeous photos.
