A field of daisies
Look, daisies! In my garden, where they belong:
Aren't they pretty?:
Oh, hello, Kai. Look at you, sitting all happy in the pasture, surrounded by.... (eek) daisies??!:
Something went terribly wrong with my middle pasture this year.
We had some daisies scattered about last year, but this year >>pow<< they really took off:
Unfortunately, despite the daisy flower's extreme cuteness, nobody around here likes to eat them. Well, the goats will eat a few of the daisy heads:
..but only a few:
...leaving an abundance of daisy stalks and foliage behind.
At this point, Reggie is just as happy stealing the hat from my head as he is grazing in "the daisy pasture":
The sheer quantity of daisies is, of course, preventing other things from growing up that all the animals would enjoy eating.
So, for this year, we are appreciating the prettiness of flowers:
With the hopes that, next year, I'll get my act together and there will be more to eat.
I'm a terrible pasture manager:
But hey, aren't those daisies pretty?
