    A delightful portrait of this charming flower.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, they can be as pretty as any cultivated flower, especially when there is that hint of pink.

  2. Great companions in the garden and beyond!

    1. Heyjude says:

      They certainly make themselves at home here in my garden!

  3. That’s very lovely. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you – my garden is full of daisies and forget me nots!

    The focusing worked so well on this one, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pete. I had my prime lens on which creates lovely blurry backgrounds.

      1. Isn’t that where the name “daisy” comes from ? I thought it was named “day’s eye” because it opened and closed at sunrise and sunset. I think that’s what my Mum told me anyway!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Could be. If it is I had forgotten!

        2. Heyjude says:

          “The name of a flower taken from the Old English daegeseage, meaning “the day’s eye”. The name reflects the way the flower opens in the day and closes at night.” So your Mum was quite correct.

        3. She usually was, it turned out!

    I love the forget-me-not with its hint of pink too.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well spotted. Some of the flowers are pink or lilac.

    How lovely. Spring is everywhere.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hurtling along at a pace. I wish it would slow down.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I seem to cultivate daisies. And dandelions.

  8. Rather an uppity daisy at this point. 🙂 Love the buebells too.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ha, yes, very uppity! And the blues are forget-me-nots, though I was taking photos of bluebells today as it happens.

      1. Sorry. I misread that. I thought I saw bluebells. Ooops.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Well they are blue, whereas bluebells are really violet.
