  3. One of my favorites. There is also a very pretty rhodanthemum hybrid called "Moondance." Palest shell pink with a dark brown eye. But of course, it does not match Boris nearly so well.

  5. That little daisy has had multiple serial name changes. Whatever it's name, it's always been about those amazing sepals -- a wonderful photos of a great daisy! (Hi, Boris!)
