Aren't Daisies the Friendly Flower?
I love daisies. Gerber daisies are my favorite flower. Remember the line Meg Ryan says in You've Got Mail...."Don't you just love daisies? They are the friendliest flower." (or something similar to that anyway) Well, I agree. Daisies are happy and inviting. As I have been going for walks around the neighborhood I have been admiring other people's yards. These daisies are the ones that my eye is always drawn to.
Someone had already done landscaping in our yard but some of it has been neglected and overgrown. Our yard needed some color and some friendliness added to it. I added 6 daisy plants and 4 impatiens. We have a mangly, overgrown rose bush (under the flag--which by the way is now a Texas flag hanging proudly!) with red blooms and a pink peony plant. I thought the color scheme would go well together. I love walking up to my house and passing by all the friendly flowers. It makes sitting on our porch swing even more enjoyable than it already was.
The cool thing is that the daisies will come back every year! Ohhh....so pretty!
