“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” ~ Therese of Lisieux ~
Daisies and Dandelions
The Swedish name for the daisy - Tusensköna – means “thousandfold beauty”.
From my childhood, I remember these especially from one place I used to visit with my grandparents. They had these three old friends, two sisters and a brother, who lived together in a little red wooden cottage far out in the countryside. These little white flowers covered the whole lawn in front of that house, and therefore the name always seemed very appropriate to me.
