Helga The Daisy Killer

I love daisies. I've always loved daisies. There is something so cheerful about their little white petals, perfectly surrounding their little yellow faces. In our garden, we have a sprinkling of daisies that grows on the grass. Now I know some lawn purists will mutter "weeds, the lot of them, daisies and clover", but I don't care. I live in the countryside, and I don't want my lawn looking like a bowling green, all trim and pristine!!

I remember, as a child, lying on the grass in the summer, and making daisy chains. There was a distinct knack to splicing the stem of the plucked daisy with your finger nail, and gently prising the split stem open, so you could thread another stem through.

I used to make daisy-chain necklaces, and bracelets, and even a daisy-chain crown, for my younger sister.

Sadly, I don't have any daughters to pass on this delightful pastime, and if I were to make a daisy-chain necklace for Master Hansen, I think he'd have me certified. Okay, so I'm already certifiable... let's not go there!!

Now, as summer approaches, the grass starts growing. And growing. And growing. Which means we have to haul out the lawn mower, and start mowing the lawns. Mr Hansen usually tries to persuade Master Hansen to mow the lawn for a nominal amount of money (which usually comes out of my purse!!), but today, Master Hansen was fighting a battle on his X-Box, and there was a HUGE "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging over his head. So, I decided to cut the grass.

Which meant I had to kill the daisies. Those beautiful white-petalled, yellow-faced beauties, that were sprinkled all over the grass. *Sigh*

I blanked my mind as I mindlessly ran over them, cutting their lives short with my ruthless blade. They vanished into the grass collector, never to be seen again. Inside, I was weeping...

But, in an act of defiance, I left a lone daisy, gently bobbing in the breeze. If Mr Hansen tells me I missed a spot, I'll run the lawn mower over his toes!!!

I wonder just how long it will be before my little daisy friends are back?

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Well, the good news is that daisies are actually very hard to kill so you needn't feel guilty for committing murder (daisycide?) ... it's more like GBH
