Mystery Flowers

Anyone know what kind of flowers these are? They remind me of Gerbera Daisies, but they look like they've been painted! I LOVE them! 

Mel and I found one flower bed full of them near a military building here in Sultanahmet. All of these pictures were taken on the south side of the bed, as the north side is a restricted no-go zone and guarded by soldiers with guns!


  1. I loved these too! I think we need to go dig up some bulbs in the middle of the night. ; ) seriously though, I have never seen flowers like these. Like they were painted by God. ; )

  2. Stunning! I'm thinking gazania.

  3. Yes! You got it! I knew I could count on you Kate! ;-)
