Quote It: Pansy and the Daisy

"A pansy and a daisyOnce in the same yard grew,The daisy was a snowy white,The pansy a purple-blue.Said the pansy to the daisy,"I am prettier than you,For you are simply gold and white,And I am purply-blue."The daisy bravely smiled,And turned her head away,And stayed in that positionTo this very day."

Oh, the joy of personifying flowers. I remember one time a few years back, I had been the recipient of a free flat of Pansies from our local nursery. I love the Pansy for it has always reminded me of sweet, happy faces of children. Having received so many plants that day, I decided to share half of the flat with my dear mother-in-law. In her lovely flower garden, I discovered Daisies growing and so this cute poem came to my mind. 

Wishing my dear readers, Happy Spring... Happy Easter!
