This unassuming flower is a commonly found weed called Tridax procumbens; It belongs to the daisy family but has the status of a weed for it’s invasive properties.
I don’t know about you but I love this flower for a simple reason that it evokes childhood memories for me. I had grown up seeing this flower more often than its superior cousin daisy and therefore, the common Tridax holds a special place in my heart.
Don’t get me wrong; I love daisies too, in fact they are among my favorite flowers, so beautiful and so elegant; but wanted the spot light on this little guy for once.
This picture was taken during our stay in one of the lovely home-stays in Yelagiri. I had written an elaborate post on that separately which you can read here.
