A Chatter of Daisies

A chatter of daisies heralds the spring
Their pert, sun-kissed faces beaming amidst the green
“The daisies are here” 
“The daisies are here” 
chorus the bees
As they flit from baby bud to baby bud
Then onto the brazen teens – beaming and open to all that pass
(And shamelessly unafraid of the cheeky breezes ruffling their petticoats)
Before settling amongst the faded stars
Their golden domes proudly standing on wilting skirts 

A cloak of delicate mauve shrugs the bed

…is spring!

    I need to look up my Thesaurus to find words to adequately describe how I feel about your daisies. Spectacular photography and choice of words -so delicate – I wish I could frame them and hang them on my walls. Love
