In the Pontiff's garden

Flowers in Vatican City Vatican City ~ April 15, 2004

When I think of the Vatican, I think of many things, but I never thought about the gardens until I visited. The gardens are delightful, and these daisy-like flowers were blooming beautifully near the cactus garden - which was really an unexpected discovery. Maybe Krise of "Floral Friday" can tell me what they are.

Visit Floral Friday to see more lovely flowers.

These are gorgeous! And you're right, 'cause when I think "Vatican," I think piles of stone and musty old rooms and funny old men wearing dresses.

Oh I've got the name on the tip of my tongue, I love these. Why can't I remember it? Not much help am I, lol!

I think they are Osteospermums - a type of African daisy. Hmmm. When I think of the Vatican I don't think of gardes either. What a nice surprise!

Beautiful flowers. Even to me Vatican city has never been linked to gardens. For me it has been places of churches/

So pretty! Just what we need now to remind us of the warm times.
