Daisy, Daisy

The tenacity of wildflowers! This little daisy, a variety that grows in the dry fields and culverts along the road, took root in a crack of our old stone sidewalk while blue chicory peeks through the dry grass.

I appreciate Mother Nature's eye for garden design. This year she clumped feverfew, anise hyssop, and black-eyed Susans into a lovely summer bouquet border along the side walk, with the thyme and parsley providing ground cover.

Being such a dry summer, I'm surprised we had any flowers at all. My rule of (green) thumb: If it's got a flower on it, it stays right where it is. Any color is a bonus.
