30 days ~ Day 22

A close-up of one of my favorite flowers, Osteospermum, or African Daisy. Not to be confused with Osteoporosis, which is what I always think of when I see this flower...me and my faulty memory. This is a great plant to have in your garden, it is really considered a shrub, the plant gets bigger and bigger every year, and it blooms only in the spring. It is really very easy to care for, and it comes in a variety of different colors that are equally stunning.
