Today, we take a break from the exotic to focus on the commonplace. Some flowers are so common and everyday to us, that we overlook them or ignore them completely. It's time the balance was redressed. So, to that end, we start with two plants which are so common, they are often trodden on, dug up and sprayed with weed killer. The first is the Daisy (Bellis perennis). I have always thought that a lawn is never complete without a few Daisies and if you take a look at their flowers close up, it becomes clear why they should be more appreciated.
The second of today's offerings is another common lawn 'weed'. This time it's the White Clover (Trifolium repens). Who would have thought that there could be such beauty in the commonplace?
