My field of dreams is sprouting daisies. . .
Not for long since the field will soon be mowed for hay.
And the occasional Bachelor Button, aka, Cornflower or Bluebottle Flower will also disappear.
I took some time to stop and smell the daisies :) and pick a boot-bouquet. . .
Ox-eye daisy is a common roadside daisy and considered a noxious week since it’s so invasive.
It’s prohibited by more states than any other wildflower for agricultural reasons.
It’s hard to believe that a flower that looks so cheery with its sunny yellow centers and white petals could be considered noxious.
“It is not spring until you can plant your foot upon twelve daisies.”
– old proverb
In was in potting / garden mode and in the kitchen this weekend. The cover of this cookbook with its whimsical illustrations provides some blooming inspiration, along with a taste of Mexico!
The Novel Bakers return tomorrow with
