A weed is just a flower in the wrong place

There is fine show of yellow flowers around the fence at the caravan storage area on Reynard Street. Were they planted or did they just grow? I don't know.

I'm reliably informed that the yellow flowers are Senecio Brachyglottis- greyi, a kind of New Zealand aster. They have very similar flowers to Ragwort but the foliage is quite different.

For Mellow Yellow Monday.


  1. Wild flowers or not, they are beautiful. Dropping by from Mellow Yellow Monday

  2. They're beautiful! Have a fabulous week.

  3. remember: all flowers were wild at one time, and once considered weeds

  4. There's one of these near where I live and it's clearly been planted on purpose, for all that the flowers look like ragwort. (I like ragwort!)I was thinking you meant this is a weed because, for all that it's a garden plant, it's not meant to be spilling out onto the pavement.

  5. Beautiful little flowers..

    Visiting for MYM- hope you can stop by..

  6. Lovely shot of these humble but beautiful daisies.

  7. A garden escape, looking very pretty, but hopefully not taking things over too much....
