I love them, so delicate and lacy looking. We get a lot in the fields around here. Maybe it is this?

It looks like fleabane (Erigeron) to me, many of which bloom right now... not sure which one. Maybe erigeron modestus or E. philadelphicus?

I'm going with Erigeron (Fleabane) although I'm not sure which variety. We have lots of it here in our county.

Common Fleabane (Erigeron philadelphicus)

Robin's plantain (Erigeron pulchellus)

I had prepared a post suggesting Erigeron strigosus, but when I saw another suggestion I decided to see what was thought of that suggestion. The leaves and habit match, the centres look bigger but they do get bigger as they develop.

It was the leaves that made me unsure.

Janet, the Erigeron strigosus sure does seem to match! Thumbs up and it's found in Florida http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=erst3

I agree with Erigeron strigosus and have added it to the DB as such. Thanks I tip my hat to you.
