The vegetable garden isn't just vegetables (and fruit) after all. There's room for goldenrod and yarrow and daisies too. They get first dibs, since before there was a garden they were already here. This morning the daisies are almost at their peak.
There's nothing as pretty as daisies on their tall graceful stems. They are both resilient and beautiful. Because they are a common field flower, they are easily overlooked. And yet: they are magnificent, really, in their understated way.
I believe we will proclaim June 16th as daisy day.
