Little Stars

This is a photograph of a patch of Erigeron karvinskianus – commonly known as Mexican Fleabane. These diminutive daisy-like flowers – from the Aster family – bloom white then turn pink. I really like them – they look really sweet drifting along stone steps and other dry areas – or strangely on a river bank which is where I found these. They have a very long flowering time – from May to October.

The direct sun really made the white flowers glow, making the image a suitable choice for a B&W conversion.

    1. Thank you! They are lovely little flowers and brighten up all kinds of areas where other plants might not grow. I think I’ll post a colour version in the next day or so. Many thanks for dropping by!


    1. Thank you Nigel. I had a couple of different images of this plant lined up to post for a couple of weeks, but wasn’t quite happy with them. Then one morning, I looked at this one and thought it would look good in B&W because of the way the white flowers glowed in the sun!
