Who Could Not Love a Daisy?

Daisies are wonderful.

They are perky and pretty.

Just looking at them makes me smile.

At a beautiful inn in Western Massachusetts,  The Red Lion, there was the biggest bunch of daisies I've ever seen in my entire life, shown in the photo above. They were in a brass container.

Yeah! Brass!  Now regular readers of this blog know I love brass, even though modern decorators say it's obsolete. So I was very happy to see the daisies in brass!

Outside on the patio, where a dear friend and I had lunch, more daisies adorned our table. So cute.

Now, I know I've written about daisies before but because they are such darling charmers, I'm doing it again.

I even love the song "Bicycle Built for Two" where the girl being wooed is named, what else?  Daisy.

    "Daisy, Daisy give me your promise true."

Now, can you find the daisies in the inn's front lobby?

No, I don't know of anyone named Daisy - yet! The old names are certainly coming back though. It's only a matter of time!

These are such beauties -- they stand out in that dark room, don't they.

And Susan, I'm sorry you're having trouble commenting. My setting says "anyone" can comment. Don't know what else to do. I'm open to suggestions :)

Beautiful restaurant and flowers - I love how fancy it feels, but not over done.

Hi Susan, Thank you for welcoming me back to your little corner of New England. Believe me, my heart has never left that part of the USA. Looking at this, I do remember now the red booths. They still have those in the dining room? I also remember the prices (and this was quite awhile ago) being high to my thinking, but it was a treat from my dear friend and we did the food proud! Even dessert, but for the life of me cannot remember what we had. I do remember it was Feb and like a little kid, I was so excited to see snowbanks around town and on the drive from Albany. We laughed the whole way over to MA because I could not get enough of the snow! Such happy memories your post have brought back. Yeah, am homesick big time, by happily so if that makes sense. I believe we cannot hold on to something forever, but the precious memories we have can bring back those special times. I am now going to peek at a few more of your delightful posts before I head out. I know I could snuggle in and read your blog from start to finish. It makes me feel like I am "home". PS I loved daisies, really loved them when I lived in NY state. Always could find a field along the edges of the highways and would take huge bouquets home in the summer! Oh, I just love the beautiful memories your blog brings back. Blessings my new friend,
