“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
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.

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
~ Georgia O'Keeffe
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.
