When Mom and Dad were here we pulled out the (nasty horrible) cactus in the front yard and replaced it with daisies (see: Slave Driver). I -LOVE- daisies.
Unfortunately for these daisies (and frankly all plants that end up in my hands) I’m a bit of a black thumb. It’s not that plants spontaneously die when I touch them.. it’s more that it takes me about 2 weeks before I actually put a plant in dirt.. and then if it’s lucky, I remember to water it. So it was with these daisies.
When I first bought them they were lovely, all in bloom. Just exactly what I wanted in my front yard. Then I let them sit around for about two weeks. When Mom and I planted these I described them as “really ragged looking grass bits “. So TA-DA! Water and planting have done these babies some good.
