Daisy's Bouquet


Daisy picked me bouquet today of honeysuckle, red clover, and a lavender wildflower I can't name. The best part was that she wrapped the stems in a vintage hankie pinned with a safety pin.


False. The best part was her sweet face above the flowers.


False. The best part was finding her perched on a stool drawing the bouquet in her sketchbook.

I can't believe how grown up she is now. Beautiful!

The best part for me is that you shared this. How lovely! My children, being so young yet, don't quite have the florist in them yet, but I am daily supplied with dandelion bouquets. And yes, the beautiful faces above the bouquets truly is the best.

So very sweet! Like the other Kate, I am still getting dandelion bouquets, but I love them. Little bits of sunshine!

What a lovely mother's day gift!
The bouquet is so pretty but the vintage hanky touch made it perfection. That Daisy is so creative! A sweet girl doing a sweet thing for her sweet mother - LOVE.

This so reminds me of my first daughter, Anna! The little ponytail, the dress, Daisy's slender build....that last picture just brought back a flood of memories. :o) Thanks for sharing this.

Delightful post and bouquet and even better the drawing!

I wanted to share something that occurred to me as I read the post: when I came to the portrait shot of Daisy I thought "isn't she getting to look like Bella!"

I thought I'd pass that on to all of you.

Well, you can hardly receive a nicer bouquet than delicious-smelling honeysuckle, red clover to put in with clothes to make them smell sweet and perhaps that third flower might be wild phlox? If it is, it smells wonderful, too! Offering it is your very own daughter...a wonderful Mother's Day present.


That comment is funny, Rose. Your thought process is almost as muddled as mine!

Oh I think all 3 are precious!

Beautiful... by the way, I think the mystery flower might be Blue Toadflax. I used to pick it when I was little, too. I love the name!

Here's a description of blue toadflax: http://www.nearctica.com/flowers/scroph/Ncanad.htm

Your house is a photographer's playground.

How lovely and so very grown-up Daisy looks in her new glasses.
