Fields of Daisies

Tuesday, May 23, 2006
If you're a regular reader of Julie's blog, you'll know that we have a soft spot for large patches of wildflowers (who doesn't?). While out on Twp 92 last Sunday afternoon (after dropping our old gas heater off at the township dumpster for Clean-up Day) I was spending some quality time with a flock of eastern kingbirds when I realized that I was standing thigh-deep in a giant meadow of field daisies.

This spring has been pretty cool and wet, which must be the perfect conditions for these sweet, and very fetching wildflowers. These flowers have the perfect combination of colors: white petals surrounding a lemon-yellow center--like a beautiful woman in a bright yellow sundress.

With the spring sun slanting in from the West, I stooped over to take a few snaps of the daisies. They seemed to smile sweetly, nodding their heads in the caress of the evening breeze. What a lovely way to end the day and the week.

Nothing like a field of daisies to bring some sunshine to the soul.
