This time of year we're in for a few months of dreary weather. It'll be a while until we see these in the yard again, so good thing there's flower shops (and indoor DIY macro flower studios...) that make these colours available year round.
The sun sets in the West, and the West Coast is a great place to be if you're a fan of catching glimpses of spectacular colour combinations. They come in all shapes and colours, with accessories too like a reflective cloud seen here.
However you call this flower, whether it be Spoon Daisy or Pink Whirl, it's a visually interesting member of the Osteospermum family. I had to do some searching online of "daisy with curled petals" in order to identify what it is!
It's not only roses at the Stanley Park Rose Garden. Some afternoon sun and a backdrop of yellow flowers came together nicely to highlight an appealing purpleish/pinkish daisy.
This appears to be a regular play; the goalie is keeping an eye on the player from the opposing team rounding the back of the net with the puck, but take note of the placement of the butt end of the goalie's stick:
Daylight Saving Time is ending this weekend, which is when we turn our clocks back one hour. It's been summer-like weather here in Vancouver the last few days, and I'm a bit sad because turning the clock back means going back to the days when we get up and go to work in the dark.... and leave work and go home in the dark. Fewer hours of daylight mean less opportunity to see things like this. I'll have to find some interesting things to take pictures of in the dark. Or start using the flash.
