Spring!!! :)


"Daisies...they're the happiest flowers, don't you think?"

Hooray for the wildflowers I picked on the way home Friday-- daisies absolutely make my day, and there's a field FULL of them, and blue cornflowers, which I pass every day on the way to school. Mom keeps our yard brimming with primroses and verdena and daffodils this time of year...all in all it made for some lovely bouquets. Praise Jesus for beauty everywhere!

(<-- I picked enough for my Mom, my nightstand (aka my Ryan-shrine ;D, AND my daisy-vase) Somewhere along my life I picked up the line from the old nursery rhyme, "...and she shall have music wherever she goes," and as I gathered these daisies in the glory of an April afternoon, the line changed, quite sweetly, to "...and she shall have daisies wherever she goes." Oh to be so blessed... :)

I've always found it amusing that we so enjoy killing and then preserving plants so that we can look at their reproductive organs. Nonetheless, I am also a big fan of daises, although I prefer them when they're alive. There's something about the absorption of light at 420-430 nm that is just beautiful!

I thought white was reflecting all the light?

They're beautiful, darling. Well deserving to share the night stand. ;)

Don't frown! You know that's just how I think of things (who else reads the Bible and has epiphanies about parasites and Santa Claus?). And yes, white is the reflection of all light...I was referring to the yellow in the middle. =)
