Oxeye Daisy

Leucanthemum vulgare

 

In the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

New Mexico

 

(And yes, the main reason I chose to visit these mountains is because I just love saying the name.... Sangre de Cristo...   it's musical!  Put on your best Spanish accent and say it...  

Well, and partly because they're just outside Santa Fe which is where I'd chosen to go for my birthday  :-) )

What a beautiful minimalist presentation. I love it. Happy Birthday!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Beth!
I find it fascinating that the Spanish name geographical figures after Catholic concepts. It reminds me: a few years ago, Catholics objected to a nuclear submarine being name Corpus Christi. For some silly reason they objected to the name of Christ being attached to mass destruction. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - they just name everything after Catholic concepts! smile
I suppose I can understand the submarine objection! smile
And a lovely flower
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Tom!
