Last Sunday, we stopped at Topsmead State Park to take in the formal gardens and have a walk around the grounds. There are some very beautiful wildflowers around this natural treasure in Litchfield, Connecticut. Sunday was humid, hazy, and heavy with the sweet perfume of summer, ready or not!

    English Daiseys. I think that is their name. I have them here too and they come up each year on their own. I like your picture of them against the blue sky.

  5. The Daisys have just come into bloom this past week in our region and somehow they seem to have opened the door upon summer. A wonderful choice.

  69. I'm tempted to tell like Chuck Pefley, what it is said in France when we get Daisies : "Je t'aime, unpeu (a little), beaucoup (a lot), passionnement (passionately), pas du tout (not at all)." A little girl game.
    I love Daisy, and all the flowers that looks wild, and non perfect. Thanks to share your natural bunch, Sandy. J'aime beaucoup.

  77. These are both very summery, Sandy. They make me want to run barefoot throught the field! I especially love the second shot, it reminds me of a quilt I once made of daisys, framed by blue and white... art imitating nature, of course!
