Blackfoot Daisy Flower Head from Below 9391

And here’s what a flower head of a blackfoot daisy, Melampodium leucanthum, looks like from below; only from this side can you see the darker lines on its white rays. Like the previous photo, this one is from the front yard of native plant promoters Dale and Pat Bulla in northwest Austin, but I took the picture on February 24 of the current year. The blue in the lower right is from a patch of sky visible through the trees, a consequence of lying on the ground and aiming partly upward.

Blackfoot daisies, Melampodium leucanthum, often appear in clusters, as you see in this photo taken on the property of native-plant-ophiles Dale and Pat Bulla in northwest Austin exactly one year ago today.
