This morning I picked the first daisies from my flower garden. It made me happy. I always liked daisies. I put them in a blue pottery pitcher and set it on my kitchen counter. From "theflowerexpert.com", I learned some interesting facts about these flowers;
~They convey cheer and exuberance.
~They are native to north and central Europe.
~They are simple and yet one of the most beautiful flowers in the floral world.
I decided to add a few of the delicate blue flowers from the pots on my porch. I think it I like them better this way.
A few more facts;
~The origin of the word daisy is Anglo Saxon, "daes eage" literally meaning "day's eye". It was called this because daisies opened at dawn, as the day is just beginning.
~Daisies symbolize innocence and purity. They symbolize new beginnings.
This is another simple and pretty way to display daisies.
~The flower meaning of daisy is "loyal love" and "I will never tell".
I thought this was a good idea for giving daisies to someone. It is from a page of "Country Living Magazine." Think how special one would feel to find this package at the back door.
Wishing you daisies and sunshine today(especially to you in the Northwest. I know you have been waiting for a long time for some sunny days).
