Strawflowers

Strawflower

Suns scattered on ground
though they don’t glow like real
they own their sunshine.

Yellow strawflowers 
in the universe of green 
outshines like a sun.

P.sHaiku inspired by yellow paper daisies captured from one of the wildest place in Theni. 
Commonly known as the golden everlasting or strawflower, is a flowering plant native to Australia and it grows as a woody or herbaceous perennial or annual shrub up to a metre tall with green or grey leafy foliage. Golden yellow or white flower heads are produced from spring to autumn; their distinctive feature is the papery bracts that resemble petals.

Love the little Strawflowers.. They look so happy and look like they are smiling.. BUT--It's me who is smiling when I see those little beauties.

Hugs,
Betsy

I love these flowers very much and they are only grown in the cool highlands in my country. I am aware that the farmers would dry them to make excellent dried flowers with different colours.. Thank you for telling me the name is strawflowers!
