Gloriosa Daisies

These daisies are gloriously beautiful, and I think that inspired the name.  A friend gave me a clump of them and I planted them beside my arbor trellis, at the lower end.  They grew and bloomed there for a couple of years but dwindled away.  To my surprise, I now find small clumps of them growing in unexpected places.  There is one such clump at the edge of the Shasta Daisies beside my driveway, and another little clump beside the currant bush.  This plant is growing very near my burn ring.

I had brush to burn–berry bush canes, and tree branches–but I couldn’t burn it because the heat from the fire would surely affect the beautiful daisies, perhaps even kill them.  I decided to wait until after the flowers are done blooming before I would use the burn ring.

Then I received the advice that I could take the brush to the area behind the city garage and leave it there for them to dispose of.  Instead of burning the brush this year, I hauled it to the city brush pile.  The Gloriosa Daisy is still blooming beautifully.  I’m glad that I didn’t have to keep the brush until the daisy was finished blooming this year.  And, perhaps it will grow again in this same place.  It’s welcome to grow there, or in another spot in my flower beds if it would choose that.  It’s a beautiful flower.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Sally, I’ve been really busy during the last months. I’m thankful to be busy. I keep thinking I will do the blog more and then suddenly I realize it’s been days since I’ve written a blog.

    Cyndi, it’s nice to see you here. Thanks for visiting the site. And, yes, the flowers seem very special this year. Maybe it’s all the rain, or cooler temperatures. Whatever. They have been very pleasing and I’ve enjoyed having them. NJ
