Like a Secret Garden


I love flowers and even if I'm not very familiar with all of their names, I capture their beauty as often as I can. My favorite flower snapshot of the day often ends up as my background. I think I've changed my background 3 times this month. For those who come here often, don't be confused. It's still the same ol' me. senyumkenyit But I think I'm keeping the latest template for a long time.

Today, we luckily passed by Sloat Garden Center : 3rd Ave. SF branch.

I felt like I stumbled into a secret garden. (Oh,joy!)

They are so gorgeous! The downside is that I forgot to check their names! I can be a space cadet sometimes. blur So, if anybody of you knows the name of these flowers, please kindly inform me. Thanks!
Update: John said they are called Cinneraria or Cinnerarias. Thanks John!

I will share more flower photos next time. See you then!

  1. Hi Shey, the pics are beautiful as always! That path with the Japanese Maples does look like a Secret Garden. I love it!

    I'm 99.9% sure the daisy like flowers you asked about are called Cinneraria or Cinnerarias.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh gosh, did you buy anything? I used to go there at least once a week when I actually had some outdoor space! Someday I'll have a HUGE garden.....

  5. Hi A! Yes, I did buy one. (I forgot the name, heheh. Will tell you tomorrow.) I don't have a backyard since we live on the 2nd floor but it will have a place in our mini veranda.
