Wildflowers

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...  ~Susan Polis Shutz


While killing time one day I preserved a few flowers


I love daisies.

I was thinking to myself, "This is observation not preservation."...then it dawned on me...you preserved them in the photograph...duh!

That first daisy looks like it has been in a fight. Not with the second daisy though. The second daisy looks like it avoids trouble at all costs! It is a well preserved daisy.

Beautiful Ann....I like your style in how you preserve the finest nature has to offer.

Oh, and marbles? Ironic, just the other day Bud and I were talking about how kids have no idea or imagination on how to entertain themselves these days, and the subject of marbles came about....I LOVE your photo below this post. I would give both my ovaries [if I still had 'em] for my marble collection I had way back when!!!

I love daisy's and the first one i like the best, it has attitude... this is so true, with our cameras we preserve things for ever that will be gone in a few days...

I like the daisies myself. They always offer such a fresh feel when brought inside.I planted a double a few years ago, I believe called "Crazy".That vetch is pretty too.

I love the purple wildflowers. They are gorgeous. I am not a huge fan of daisies.

Daisies are my absolute favourite flowers. They remind me of my Dad.
When I was young we used to visit Gran and Grandads grave and the cemetary was always full of wild daisies during the summer, I remember those walks with fondness.
