Bellis Perennis

“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.” ~ Nadine Stair
Daisies [bellis perennis], to me, are hope, joy and love wrapped up into one. They've always symbolised that to me, ever since I made my first daisy chain on a warm August night in 1998. I've loved them ever since.
