“Daisies are what boho dreams are made of …”

A cluster of daisies – the essence of beauty in simplicity – artfully bloom like a spring dream on a beautiful late May afternoon at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Daisies After A Spring Rain ...

“Where innocent bright-eyed daisies are,
With blades of grass between,
Each daisy stands up like a star
Out of a sky of green.”
      ~ Christina Rossetti
        ~ 1830-1894                               
Raindrops linger on daisies, so beautiful and innocent, sweet and simple and the star of the show, on a late spring afternoon in early June when the sun has broken through after a rainfall at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Daisies Don't Tell ...

   “If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
                         ~ Georgia O'Keeffe
                                    ~ 1887-1986
The popular 1950s catchphrase says “Daisies Don’t Tell,”  but this lone wild daisy along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail), Slatington, Pennsylvania speaks of spring with its sweet and simple beauty on a May afternoon.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Slatington, established in 1864, is the designated Blackboard Capital of America.
