"Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flowers?"
Kathleen Kelly in You've Got Mail
Several times a week I walk down to our local grocery store, my grocery tote swinging from my hand. By deliberately not buying everything I need during my major shopping of the week I force myself to get out and walk. It takes me about 15 minutes to get there. And the road is so pretty. It's partly wooded, with a few houses along one section. Fresh forest scents waft up against me, while trees rustle in the breezes.
I was inspired today to take these pictures of the daisies that grow along the road. Friendly looking, aren't they?
"The daisy's for simplicity and unaffected air." Robert Burns
I think Robert Burns would like the bottom photo. Those friendly daises are nestled up to Scotch Broom, brought here by a homesick Scotsman in the 19th century, and now considered invasive. But the daisies don't know that and they thrive along with the broom.
