This time of year, there are so many beautiful images of summer daisies spread across the web...many are posted by followers of this blog... beautiful they are.
Being that person who is always for the underdog, I thought I would post an image of daisies...but daisies who have passed their prime. At one time...sporting bright pristine white petals with brilliant orange centers...these daisies were bursting with pride. Now, their petals torn, missing, spotted and reaching towards the sun for that last bit of nourishment...they don't compare to the new younger more robust daisies in their prime.
They have now served their purpose...once beautiful...attracting the bees and releasing their pollen to assure the return of daisies for next year...the survival dance has taken it's toll. Daisies not unlike any living creature on this planet valiantly battle the passage of time only to lose but their time on this earth only enhances the beauty of Summer...Old Daisies are beautiful too!
