Sunshine Daisies, Butter Mellow

Daisies are one of those flowers that, while a common sight here in the UK, always make me smile whenever I catch sight of them. Around this time of the year, those tell-tale white and yellow blooms are popping up all over the lawn and along roadsides, with tall, sun-yellow daffodils and lilac coloured crocuses.

So while the sun was shining out on the front lawn today I took the opportunity to get some photos and some sun. I'm hoping that the weather gets warmer and the sun stays around for the Easter weekend!





There have already been a few bumblebees buzzing around in search of nectar and I'm hoping that while the other plants wake up, these daisies are a good start! When we first moved in to where we are now, there was already a fuchsia bush planted outside and by the time summer rolled around it was full of pink and purple blooms and I can't wait until it flowers again. Until then, I'm happy to spot these little daisies everywhere.

As always, with it being Friday, I'm linking up for Photo Friday with Jen.


Hope you all have a wonderful long, Bank Holiday weekend!

  4. I do like daisies!! One of my favourite Doctor Who quotes ever, involves daisies:
    Jo:

    Jo Grant: Makes it seem so pointless, really, doesn't it?
    The Doctor: I felt like that once when I was young. It was the blackest day of my life.
    Jo Grant: Why?
    The Doctor: Ah, well, that's another story. I'll tell you about it one day. The point is, that day was not only my blackest, it was also my best.
    Jo Grant: Hmm? Well, what do you mean?
    The Doctor: Well, when I was a little boy, we used to live in a house that was perched halfway up the top of a mountain. And behind our house, there sat under a tree an old man. A hermit, a monk. He'd lived under this tree for half his lifetime, so they said, and had learnt the secret of life. So, when my black day came, I went and asked him to help me.
    Jo Grant: And he told you the secret? Well, what was it?
    The Doctor: Well, I'm coming to that, Jo, in my own time. Ah, I'll never forget what it was like up there. All bleak and cold, it was. A few bare rocks with some weeds sprouting from them and some pathetic little patches of sludgy snow. It was just grey. Grey, grey, grey. Well, the tree the old man sat under was ancient and twisted, and the old man himself was... he was as brittle and dry as a leaf in the autumn.
    Jo Grant: But what did he say?
    The Doctor: Nothing. Not a word. He just sat there silently, expressionless, and he listened whilst I poured out my troubles to him. I was too unhappy even for tears, I remember. And when I'd finished, he lifted a skeletal hand and he pointed. Do you know what he pointed at?
    Jo Grant: No.
    The Doctor: A flower. One of those little weeds. Just like a daisy, it was. Well, I looked at it for a moment and suddenly I saw it through his eyes. It was simply glowing with life, like a perfectly cut jewel, and the colours... the colours were deeper and richer than anything you could possibly imagine. Yes, it was the daisiest daisy I'd ever seen.
    Jo Grant: And that was the secret of life? A daisy?

    Your pictures are gorgeous!!

  11. I LOVE daisies. I don't see too many here, it's mostly the yellow buttercup flowers on the ground here, but I always try to keep my eye out for them.
