Daffodils on the brain
One of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil, is one of the reasons I can't help smiling. The color reminds me of my mother (yellow is her favorite, and she's usually happy and smiling, herself). But my favorite flower is the daisy. It's plain and simple, and hardy, too. The soft white petals unfurl from the yellow core. I carried daisies down the aisle to meet my groom... despite feeling a bit of pressure from those who said that a daisy really is just a glorified weed.

And I'll promise not to read too much into it. (Daffodil=unrequited love; daisy=innocence; calla lily=magnificent beauty; carnation=pride and beauty. At least if you believe what one internet site says!)
