Daisy's flowers

A little peek into my April garden
 
 tulips
pansies
fresh boxwood
lavender leaves
 pinks, yellows, and violets
sunshine & raindrops
 
 "Daisy had nothing but flowers in her little plot, and it bloomed all summer long with a succession of gay or fragrant posies. She was very fond of her garden, and delved away in it at all hours, watching over her roses, and pansies, sweet peas, and mignonette, as faithfully and tenderly as she did over her dolls or her friends."
- from "Little Men" by Louisa May Allcott

 Happy 1st day of May!

I do not think it is a German custom to exchange lily of the valley on May 1st. xo
