It being the end of term, one of my pupils gave me this wonderful plant. I just love its cheerfulness! It was in a bright blue bag and the combination of colours was so lovely especially after all the grey dreary days we've been having.
In the evening, it closes up its petals like some sort of golden spider, and then next morning, there it is again, shouting its happiness to the sun. I haven't quite decided where I am going to put it yet, but it will be somewhere I can see it from the dining table. It's a Gazania, which I think come from South Africa, and are fairly hardy, so I hope it will be with me for a long time.
