English Daisy

"Don't you think Daisies are the friendliest flower?"
-Kathleen Kelly, You've Got Mail, 1998

First the poppies, and now this:

The other flowers are following suit and showing their pretty faces.
I said "hello!" and "welcome back!" recently to our English Daisies. Also known as Bellis Perennis, in the family of asteraceae. The most notable feature of English Daisies are the tubular petals. A baby has only 2-3 layers of these petals. As it matures, the layers increase in number.

Happy Memorial Day!

Thanking God today for those who put other's first; for those who are so brave and fierce in their love for our Country.

God Bless America.
