Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer Do

Reddish daisies are my favorites.

I like to take long walks in the master-planned community next to mine. Because it’s newer and wants to set itself apart, this residential area has some beautiful, different flora. What I especially enjoy seeing are its wildflower reserves.

A bounty of beautiful daisies

Recently those reserves were alive with color but mainly featured one kind of flower: Daisies!

The white daisies really stand out.

I’m used to seeing the white variety of daisies. But these reserves showed off several different hues of Asteraceae.

Pink and purple daisies cluster together.

It ’twas a veritable cornucopia of color!

A butterfly also appreciates the daisies.

My Nikon 105mm macro lens made it easy to get up close and personal with the daisies. That came in especially handy when a butterfly joined in on the fun.

Bees like the daisies, too!

And it kept me away from potential harm when the bees started buzzing around.

Purple daisies predominate.

All in all, my enthralling wildflower reserve experience was so much like the song:

“Daisy, daisy, give me your answer do.

I’m half crazy all for the love of you!”
