Ah, the daisies!

There is no such thing as a bad day fishing on western Montana’s small streams, but it’s extra special when the daisies are in bloom!

    • My pleasure, Maureen! These photos were taken on a stretch of Thompson River that I fish at least a half dozen times a summer, not because the fishing’s good there, but because of the daisies.

  3. You are right, bow can anybody be feeling low if they are in the middle of a patch of daisies. I refuse to mow my lawn near my carport as there are wild daisies in bloom. After they are gone by I’ll mow. First the violets, then the daisies,… life is good!

    • I feel the same way about them. They, above all wildflowers, seem to pick up a person’s spirits.

  4. I’ve always like ox-eyed daisies, partly because the whole concept of daisies is so old fashioned with so many traditions.

    • That’s certainly a large part of their appeal. They have caught people’s attention and fancy over the ages.

  5. I love daisies, and these are just perfect and crystal clear with raindrops.

    • They are fresh and clean from the rain too and can be seen from a long distance.

    • Yes, they are great subjects and they go so well with the greens of the riverbank.

    • As birds are the optimists of the animal world, Daisies are the optimists of the flower world.
