serendipitous daisies

I have this blurb in my etsy profile that reads:
I like to stop every now and then on my way to and from work to photograph whatever strikes my fancy.
And I'm not kidding. I will actually stop while I am driving to or from somewhere just to take pictures of something.

I was, in fact, on my way to Adrian to run errands when I noticed these white flowers on the hill that comes out of the ditch on the side of the road. I couldn't actually tell what they were as I was driving by, but I knew I was going home by the same route, so I decided I would stop and check them out.

Indeed, I stopped on the way back home. I was figuring that the little white flowers were probably going to turn out to be weeds... but I could still take some pictures of them and play around with them on the computer nonetheless. As it turned out, to my surprise, growing up out of the weeds and tall grass in the ditch was a large patch of daisies. Serendipity.







I must have spent 30 minutes traipsing back and forth in that ditch...

I just love daisies. They are a little sunshine sent from the heavens. I'm the same way, I've been on a bus on my way home and got off to take photos. That's either dedication or neurotic in my case :)

Beautiful!

I do the same thing. Sometimes, when I'm in a hurry, I'll go back to make the photograph later. The first daisy photo is my favorite of the three.

Daisies are among my favourite flowers.. simple but beautiful. Nicely captured.
