Welcome Daisies

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).

Good Morning Judy. :) The daisies are all so happy and pretty. I love the idea of leaving them on someone's door in a sweet bag. We have daisies growing in the woods right next to our house. 15 years ago when we moved in here we threw out a package of seeds. They just keep coming back year after year.

Isn't it funny; as beautiful as they are and as much as I love flowers, I've never had luck with daisies! Maybe I'll try again with an approved one for my area:)

Love your daisy bouquets, Judy. And thanks for brightening my day...and for thinking of us here in the Pacific Northwest where we have had grey days for a long time. The sunshine is on it's way...soon...we hope.

When I opened your blog today I had to pause and stare at the Morning Glories. I planted some seeds this year and they didn't grow, so I am enjoying yours. So pretty.
Now, onto those daisies...
I learned so many interesting things about them. The only thing I knew before reading your post is that they are such cheerful flowers.
Your arrangements are so pretty and of course, I really love your addition of the sweet blue flowers. I would never have thought to do that, but it is soo charming. I am always amazed at the creative ideas I pick up in blogland. Thank you for sharing this one.
