I have many childhood memories of warm summer days, dripping ice lollies and lazing on the grass making daisy chains. Now, some good few years later, I can still find happiness amongst the daisies. Indeed, I can spend many hours gazing at a flower looking for the shapes, shadows, colours and textures which bring together mother nature's work of art. This may be a sign of extreme passion and creativity or indeed an excuse to laze in the sun. Here is a small collection of the results of my flower gazing. In a busy world we are often rushing and only have time to glance at our surroundings however slowing down and taking a minute can reveal many details otherwise missed. I hope that you take some inspiration from these images and when you next have a moment take a look at a daisy and marvel at its beauty.
