Today's Flower..........

Blogger decided to turn the first photo???  These daisies are growing in the raspberry patch, and they are quite pretty, so picked a bunch and brought them into the house. I haven't thought of this rhyme for a long time:

Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do.

I'm half crazy all for the love of you.

It won't be a stylish marriage,

I can't afford a carriage.

But you'll look sweet,

Upon the seat,

Of a bicycle made for two.

You may wear your virtues as a crown, As you walk through life serenely, And grace your simple rustic gown With a beauty more than queenly. Though only one for you shall care, One only speak your praises; And you never wear in your shining hair, A richer flower than daisies.

The daisy's for simplicity and unaffected air.

The daisy is my most favourite flower, even above roses. They are usually what I receive on anniversaries bday etc.

I love how they love packed in a vase on my kitchen table.

Have a happy Sunday

I don't know why blogger does that. In this case I like the perspective of the flowers and I like how you've transitioned from the flower to the arrangment.
I remember that song. Having grown up in the 60's and 70's I've worn daisies more than once in my hair.
Lovely post Gill!

The daisy is a simple but beautiful flower. Your pictures are very nice.

Good Sunday, dear!

I've always loved daisies and you've captured them beautifully and shown us some lovely poems about them :o)

Lovely post Gill, with pretty daisies and all the quotes. Now I am singing Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do in my head. I loved singing it as a child. I think I will be singing it all day now.

Hands down for me, daisies are one of my favorite flowers! I think because my Mom loved them so much. If you don't mind, I do have to add the 2nd verse to your verse--There are a couple of versions to it, but this is the one I know:

Harry, Harry
Here is my answer true.
I can't cycle, for I get black and blue.
If you can't afford a carriage
There won't be any marriage.
For I'll be switched if I'll be hitched
On a bicycle built for two.

I hope you've had a good weekend Gill!! :-))

I love daisies on the lawn. I know they're weeds but I sill like them. My granddaughter and I make daisy chains just like I used to when I was little. Funny how some of the things children do don't change with the years.

Pretty daisies. Always so cheerful and dainty.
Happy Sunday!
