Daisy parade

My favorite flower of all time is the daisy. The simple, simple daisy. And each spring I wait and wait for the daisy flower buds to appear. Then suddenly they do!

The daisies are coming. The daisies are coming.




Please tell me I'm not the only one who hears this chant over and over in my head each spring.



And when my Painted Daisies begin to bloom the chant becomes a shout!





Oh how I do love these posies!




The Red Hot Pokers aren't too shabby either. Though they are just beginning and will be much prettier in about a week.




And the Honeysuckle. . . ::sigh::




And the Dame's Rocket. . . ::swoon::





And the Peony. . . ::somebody get me a parasol please::





Even the tree house has some flowers.

that peony is breathtaking!
They are my favourite--I just wish ants didn't come with them.

Pink honeysuckle! I've never seen such a thing, but I love it! The sweet scent of honeysuckle is one of the strongest scent memories I have of childhood summers. Thanks for sharing!

Those flowers are amazing. Summer is here already so flowers are pretty rare -- it's just too dang hot.
