My daisies appear as energetic as any other flowers, so I feel they have gotten an unfair reputation based on simple rhyming.

Considering the battle my daisies had to fight to survive in our untended garden, I think they deserve a medal for valor!


As the chilly winds of winter are beginning to blow, my toes go into frozen mode. The rest of me isn’t cold, but until the sun comes back, my feet will never be warm. So … what could be more soothing than flowers? From this past summer, my favorite late summer blossom – Black-eyed Susans.

Best of the Summer Garden

As the summer draws to a close — I can’t believe it’s almost over — it’s time to sing a little homage to the garden’s glorious few months.

Thinking About Flowers

The first sign of spring

The first sign of spring

As I watch the snow slowly melt away while hoping we don’t get more, my thoughts turn to flowers and springtime. It’s natural when the world has been all white for weeks. Are crocuses popping up amidst the rubble of winter? My son did a little digging and says yes, they are trying to break through … but the weather guys are saying there’s more snow on the way. Can the baby flowers survive another round of ice and snow?

The sky was so blue this morning when I got up. Now it is fading to white, not a good sign.

I am tired. Not just of winter. Plain old tired. I had any number of ambitious plans for the day, but I think instead I’m going to do nothing much. Maybe I’ll feel bright and bushy-tailed tomorrow. Right now I need a good book. Maybe a little chicken soup too.

And flowers. How very much I yearn for flowers.
