Simple, perfect, petite and pretty - for me the humble wee daisy is the ultimate symbol of warm, lazy summer days.
As soon as the sun shines they just seem to burst up out of the grass, almost as though they are inviting you to sit amongst their delicate white petals with your picnic. They fill you with a comforting sense of nostalgia as they encourage you to reminisce about the long hot summer holidays from your childhood while idly stringing them together to make miles of daisy chains...
Yeah, I know that's a whole load of romantic nonsense... but you know, I like it!
Summery days are all about wearing your rose tinted spectacles with an equally summery dress; making daisy chains and paddling barefoot in the sea; forgetting about work and worries while unplugging from the virtual world to go out and play in the real one. Sometimes you've just got to stop and enjoy the simple things the world presents you with...
Wishing you all the most wonderful day and here's hoping you have time to smell the daisies... :)
