Daisies?

Seriously, there are a multitude ofplant specieswith this flower shape. Could you post a picture of the leaves and someting (like a key or a matchbox) to give a hint of the size, that would make identification more likely.

Looks like a Shasta Daisy (or some variety of it).

You are in luck! Don't know where you live, but it seems to be the same as the one I am holding in my hand, just picked from my front yard, where it grows as a weed. According to my botanist wife,ours is Chrysanthemum leucanthemum (although the name may have been recently changed), the common Ox-eye Daisy, and yours is probably the same. It is native to Europe and Asia, and introduced into the USA, where it grows wild as a common roadside weed (and one of the nicer ones, at that).It has many other common names throughout the world.

Probably more than you wanted to know, but there you have it.

Good clear photos.

Cheers!
