Mon Bouquet du Jour



Daisies, simple Daisies.





They're not particular.  Daisies will grow anywhere.






Growing in profusion at the back of our house.






Inside or outside, always welcome.






Daisies are so obliging.  Scatter their spent flower heads (whole) wherever you want them to grow.  





Thank you for stopping by. Your friendship is so appreciated.

Have a wonderful weekend my dear 
Blogging Friends. 

Gina

    1. Dear Eileen, Daisies do look lovely in vases and isn't it surprising how long they last in water. They always look fresh and sweet no matter where you put them

  6. I love all the daisies growing outside - brings back memories of the field behind our house before more houses were built. They sure last a long time in a vase of water; I've got a bouquet a week old and they still look fresh as the day I picked them.

    1. Dear Lavender, It is amazing how long Daisies last in a vase. I'm sorry that you lost your field of daisies. Maybe you can start a new one. I'll send you the seeds.

    1. Thank you Kathy for your sweet compliment and thank you also for your visit. I know that there are several varieties of Daisies but I still prefer the simple, single type.

  9. I learn so many things from you, Gina! I didn't know it would be so easy to grow daisies! I'm guessing you scattered quite a few!

    1. Dear Mark, And I learn so many things from you. Can you grow Daisies in your climate? Once established, they like to take over. But around our garden they are welcome harbingers of more to come.

    2. The Shasta Daisy likes plenty of sun and grows in any soil, so should work for Florida, though I don't see them around. I think one of our most successful flowers here is the nasturtium.

    3. Dear Mark, As you might have noticed I am very fond of Nasturtiums. I can send you a few Daisy seeds so you can give them a try.

  10. Daisies are one of my very favorite flowers. I carried them in my wedding. I always have daisies growing in my garden and love it when I can cut them for house bouquets.

    Thanks for the beautiful eye candy tonight.

    1. Hello Art and Sand, You're in good company. So many of us like the simple Daisy, and what's not to like. They are perfect in any setting. Have a great week and thank you for your visit.

  11. Gosh, lovely daisies Gina. My daughter brought me a tiny little poetry book of poems for daisies the other day. It's such a sweet little book. I too love daisies. I think daisies were the very first flower I ever tried to draw. Hope you have a lovely rest of the week. :)

    1. Thank you Veronica. It would be lovely to have a book of poems about daisies. Since you know how to draw why not paint a few sheets of stationary. Your friends would be so surprised and so pleased to have such a treasure.

  13. Somehow I missed this post Gina - a stunning display of daisies at the back of your house. I used to love making daisy chains on our lawn when a child. May be they are the first flowers that we really become aware of as a child with their bright sunny faces. The daisies I grow now are marguerites which have a soft green foliage.

    1. Dear Rosemary, Maybe you also remember making a wreath to carry on your head like a crown. To this day I still love the simple daisy, maybe a reminder of uncomplicated times.

  14. P.S I have a daisy post I did a few weeks ago in 'drafts' which I had forgotten about - you have reminded me that I must resurrect it.

    1. Thank you Judy and thank you for your visit. I don'tknow how old this beat up enamel bucket is but it's been around for a while.

  16. Thank you Judy, That pot is an old enamel bucket which I had to negotiate for when we purchased the old farm. The elderly Lady didn't want to let go of anything. And I didn't blame her...she had lived there for almost a hundred years.
