TODAY'S FLOWERS # 317

You can find all kinds of beautiful flowers on the TODAY'S FLOWERS home page here.


This week I am once again sharing photos taken at the church in the village I used to live in before I married and moved to the USA.  Last week's TF post showing the church (if you didn't see it) is here.  


It was wonderful visiting again.  It had been 20 years since the last time.  All those years ago when I was still young, I didn't go out of my way to browse around graveyards.  Now at this stage of my life I find I enjoy them, for the beauty, the peace and the history.  


I will share other photos from the church but today I wanted to show you the Ox-eye Daisies that were growing everywhere.  I loved them.





This is the lane leading up to the church.

Oh what gorgeous photos, Denise! Daisies are one of my favorite flowers. They always make me think of sunny, happy days.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I always think of them as such happy little flowers. They don't invite or require any fuss, they are just happy to be. And you have captured their beauty and happiness!

What an absolutely beautiful place. Love the daisies too.

Arija said...

To quote from 'You've got Mail', "daisies are such happy flowers".These are an imported weed in Australia and flourish in my mountain garden everywhere, I love them, they are a little breath of home.
So glad you enjoyed doing all the things we neglect to do when we are young.

Pleased to find your meme.
Marguerites as I call those white daisies are one of my favorites. I do love your blog. I'd love to have you visit my Author,s View entry in the flower view meme.

Lovely memories Denise. Yes the Oxeye daisies still grow well in the West Country. I photographed some in my Home county of Somerset last year and I am sure they were much larger than the ones I see here in East Anglia. We use to call them 'Moon' daisies or some called them 'Horse' daisies.

I love how the big awesome daisies lead up the path, it is so inviting! And especially your header is so beautiful with the dark church, the greenery, and the brilliant blue sky. The church is amazing.

The daisies are really beautiful, and I like the sense of serenity about the surroundings.

Mike @ A Bit About Britain said...

This looks a really beautiful place, Denise. One for the list, i think. I took the trouble to look at your other posts featuring Marldon - how quintessentially English!

Karen S. said...

A most perfect and lovely resting place. Very exquisite garden!

Especially lovely. I bet at least one of my ancestors is buried in that church yard. I am finding them all over England. I think I am traveling to England in 2016, good lord willing and the creek don't rise.

The church is wonderful, with it's stone work, spires, and wrought iron grillwork. The Oxeye daisies set if off. I have these abundantly self-seeding in my yard, they would take over if allowed.

You come from - and reflect - that beautiful place where you grew, D

Denise, these are all beautiful. Really love the way you framed the first two...

Karen said...

Daisies are one of my favourite flowers. These are lovely shots Denise.

Mimsie said...

Those daisies are beautiful. We have some flowering right now of a different variety which are pink.
Perhaps it is my English ancestry, but I simply love to see scenery in that country, particularly those old buildings. That church is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

orvokki said...

Beautiful. I remember the summer, which was like yesterday.

maryaustria said...

I love daisies! I used to pick daisies, clovers and cornflowers as a kid. Happy times!

Beautiful flowers (daisies are so special) -- is so great to know how much you enjoyed 'going home again.'

pattisjarrett said...

I love these! Every year I think I should like to put some in our garden, but when I go to the garden center, I come home with something else!

gigihawaii said...

Those daisies are so pretty.

Marie said...

The ox-eye daisies are just beautiful! Their faces are so simple and sweet, catching the sun! I'm so happy you got to go visit again in your old hometown and the church that means so much. It's just so gorgeous!

Forest Dream Weaver said...

How beautiful this is....everything....
lovely sleepy village!

Have a great week Denise,

Oh Denise what a lovely spot to have lived and that lane...it took my breath away. Every May my meadow is filled with ox-eye daisies...I'll try to remember to pick some just for you next year.

there is something special walking in a field full of flowers. So close to nature itself.
