Please don't mow the daisies..........

We have daisies in our lawns, and I love them to bits, cheerful wee things. I hate it when the mower slices right over them, cutting them close to the ground so they have to start all over again. They always manage, though, and stud the green grass with little stars of whtie and yellow, pretty leaves attached. This time, though, they were left, and mowed around. This is the result:

Most of the stems are a good 5 - 6", the way nature intended daisies to be I reckon. If you leave them, you can pick a few for a small vase or glass. So simple, so beautiful. Give it a try.
