Still Remember These Flowers?

Having photograpy as a hobby sometimes enable you to relate the pictures you took with something in your life. Take these four pictures for example. They were taken from around my college and also the surroundings here.

P/S: Only the pictures of Taraxacum japonicum were taken from the internet as I couldn't find any tanpopo at the moment.

Four species of flowers, one thing in common. Can you name what relates these four flowers? Leave you answer in the comment box (not shoutbox). Lets see how many will guess it right!

By the way, there is actually a reason why I put the sunflower as the first picture. It has a connection with myself. I guess that should provide you the clue to guess the relations between these flowers now, right? So, keep on guessing away. I'll not be replying to any comments yet to keep it interesting.

UPDATED: I'll be revealing the answers now. The one I was looking for is all these flowers are the names used for our classes in PPKTJ. I know that's almost impossible for you to get it right, unless you studied there before. Of course all the guesses you guys threw in was not wrong. It's just that they weren't they answers I was looking for. Anyway, thanks for trying your luck!

Talking about the first picture, it's not sunflower as I thought earlier. After some people (thanks Tiger for the research) pointed out about it, I found out that it is called Rudbeckia. Sorry for mistake I made which might have confused you.

cindee: you made a spot-on on the shape of the petals! even myself didn't notice that all of their petals curve up :)

why farnie names? those are their scientific names ma.

your third guess, about the period these flowers bloom. not really, coz only sakura can be found in spring.

nice try, though :P

Calvin said...

cl3m: close, but not what i was looking for. and yes, that first one is not a sunflower. it's called rudbeckia. mistake in indentifying the flower. but at least i've learned something new though :)
