Bellis perennis

English Daisies were one of my “experimental” flower purchases this spring…and what a great purchase! When they caught my eye at my local nursery last week, I was attracted to their simple round shape and the myriad of tiny brush-like like petals. The yellow-eyed bright red flowers pressed wonderfully in my Microfleur, and are really quite sturdy, so they should work well on my cards.

English Daisies are a low growing perennial that prefer sun to part shade, and supposedly bloom until mid summer. The leaves are rather big and floppy, so I don’t think I’ll include them on my cards, but perhaps I’ll use them with the flowers in a framed picture at some point.
