Wildflowers of KY: Daisies in an Adair Co., KY meadow

2013-05-23 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. This has to be a favorite flower of many people, even though it is the bane of some. It is one of my favorites, even though I'd have to lean to lilacs if single flower were picked, in large part for my memories of my beautiful grandmother, Addie Turner Leftwich, whose favorite colors were in the lavender to purple range. In the Wikipedia Daisy entry, it says that the flowers are sometimes call "lawn daisies," partly because they aggravate people who OD on sterile, starkly plain landscapes, and for another reason, many appreciate them, as I do, and cultivate them for the "English cottage look." Ed thought they'd be edible, and surprisingly to me, some parts are. He said he'd never eaten them, but thought they'd be bitter, and, according to the entry, the leaves are astringent when they get older. Here's to more roadside daisies. - LW PS -
