Spring ... where are you??

"I love daisies. They're so friendly. Don't you think that daisies are the friendliest flower?"

Kathleen Kelly [Meg Ryan] to Joe Fox [Tom Hanks] in You've Got Mail

Sunday was a cold, grey, dreary day around here... not at all spring-like. So while at the grocery store, I treated myself to a little pick-me-up bouquet of daisies. Don't they look sweet in the thrift store vase I picked up a few years ago? Their yellow centers look like the sun shining and they immediately cheered up the whole room!

Hoping that wherever you are, you're enjoying beautiful spring weather. But if not, a bouquet of daisies can be bought for a mere pittance at your local grocery store...

Hi Donna!
I love the daisies! My husband chose my wedding bouquet and surprised me with it. It was a bouquet of daisies and in the center was one single red rose. He told me I was the one rose he found in a field of daisies! I have a very special love for daisies!
Hugs, Sherry

How sweet!! Mid 80's here and my daisies are just about ready to bloom, sorry, it's not spring there yet! At least you haven't had to start mowing your yard!

Hi Donna This is my first visit to your blog. I found you through Pat at Mille Fiori Favoriti who maentioned you on her blog.
I love You've Got Mail. There are so many lines I like in that movie. The daisies line is one of them. I love it when Meg Ryan decides to close the store and Jean Stapleton says to her "it's the brave thing to do, daring to have a different life" and I always cry at the end when he comes over the bridge!
I love your banner. Is that your home? I'm glad I found you!

Hi Donna!
I've always loved the little e.e.cummings poem that said
"I thank heaven someone
is crazy
enough to give me
a daisy"!

Thanks for the sweet daisy picture!
Hopeful that the weather will warm up a little here soon :-)

Hugs, Pat
