Good morning everyone!
Today's image I have had since the summer, these flowers are my favourite flower and I don't know the name of themTongueSad
They grow in abundance in the Isle of Wight, in gardens and wild on walls, My Mum used to say they where "Michaelmas daisy" but I dont think Mum was right on this one, as Michaelmas daisy grow tall and more "leggy"............ where as these are more stumpy and grow in clumps around eight to ten inch tall...................If anyone knows the name of my favourite flower? it will put me out of my miseryWinkTongueTongue
I am putting up a V2 just really to give a different view of the flower, V1 is my fave of the two ................. but you might disagree............

A big thankyou all for votes and comments and the laughs too on my last upload "Meanwhile.................. Back at the Ranch"GrinGrinGrinGrin

V.1 looks like a felicia, Diane, but not V.2. Were they both on the same plant? Well captured, whatever they are. Carol

It looks like one of the aster family, but I don't know specifically. It may be a type that is indigenous to that particular island.

Thankyou........ I too was thinking Aster if some sort, I have seen them here on the mainland too, just not as many as in the IOW.

Lovely lilac colour, Diane. Looks definitely like an aster, and they come in many shapes and sizes so could easily fit your description.

I think it is related to the Michaelmass daisy--- likely a version indigenous to your location

I have these in my garden but had forgotten their name - so I have just looked it up and it is:
Erigeron glaucus is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family known by the common name seaside fleabane, beach aster, or seaside daisy. More can found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erigeron_glaucus. The very first photograph I put up on epz is of one of these lovely flowers ... Carol Grin
