Forget the prissy perfection of the Phalaenopsis… daisies herald the winds of change, moving from sophistication to simplicity with charm and creativity. This particular variety, the Leucanthemum x superbum “Old Court” is both fresh and frothy, with feathery white petals and a radiant yellow heart. Instead of still lifes or in static bouquets, seeing such flowers in movement is particularly eye-catching: they become wild, alive, and seem possessed by spirits, like country shamans… This bunch was captured at the Tatton Park Flower Show in Cheshire, England last weekend.

Love it, or love it not?
