Daisies are popping up everywhere now, brightening up the grass with their yellow and white. They are very common, and sometimes ignored in favour of more ‘fancy’ flowers, but I love their simple beauty. Especially lovely are the ones with pink tips, so pretty!
Snowdrops are not the only flowers that can be found at this time of year. You may have to look a little harder than you do in the spring or summer, but there are flower around – like daisies 🙂
I realised something this morning … it was not raining! It was actually quite dry and bright! So I grabbed my chance to nip out for a quick walk around the village. I’ve not had a chance to get out for ages what with the weather and not being well a week or two back.…… Continue reading Respite

I’ve seen ones that are quite pink but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one as red as this before. It looks a bit like…… Continue reading Red-tipped Daisy
I haven’t taken any new shots lately – I’ve been spending most of the last few days in bed or on the sofa feeling pretty yucky with some kind of lurgy – maybe the flu. Feeling a bit better today so I’m posting a photo, but it’s an old one, from last spring. If you…… Continue reading The Humble Daisy
