DAY 75 (19 JUNE) – Daisy bush (Brachyglottis greyi) (Guildford)

This cheery daisy bush caught my attention in the grounds of the Royal Surrey hospital today. Didn’t think I’d seen one before. Sure enough, it turns out to be native to New Zealand and favours hot sun, poor soil and coastal breezes. So a bit out of its comfort zone here today …

Its name brachyglottis greyi sounds appropriate – both medical and, well, grey – like the weather. Yellow flowers and grey sky do look great together though, don’t they?
