This photo of the Sweetwater Daughter is one of my favorites.
You know it is truly summer when the field daisies bloom.
This little flower is so abundant and cheerful.

I did something a little different with my daisies this year.
The components are:
Pachysandra, a great ground cover and a wonderful base for low floral arrangements.
chartreuse colored flowers in early summer.
The surprise is the fact that the container used here is actually a JELLO mold! I found white ceramic t one at the thrift store years ago.
It is the perfect way to arrange flowers around the outside of a candle.
If you aren't lucky enough to find a ceramic mold, look for molds that look like this....
I have seen people use these as a way to encircle the patio umbrella.
Speaking of JELLO......
Take a gander at this jello salad from "The Joys of Jello".
It absolutely strikes terror in my memories.....the only thing worse was when the whole thing got slathered with MAYO!
And last but not least...on the subject of Jello....
This is a wonderful read about the history of the family that invented and marketed our favorite guilty pleasure.
