More seeds

My everlasting daisies are seeding. You can see the seeds floating away from the daisies in the centre of the picture. The seeds are thistledown-soft while the flowers themselves are as crisp and shiny as glossy wrapping-paper.
I have to ration water to the garden, saving it for fruit trees, herbs and a very few vegies in pots, so flowers now have to get on as best they can.
I love this local flower that blossoms exuberantly when so much else is withering, living well on just what is here.
