The plan was in action. The daisies was supported with strings on a pole. Half a meter up, the plant becomes bushy. The growth of the plant sudden stop at half a meter. All the buds were not open as usual. They turned black and dropped off. At the beginning of this year, the summer time. The plant was positioned away from wind and have all the warm north sun. After all the effort, I have one and a half daisies! Daisies are the most easy to have in any garden.. but NOT anymore. It's the climate change!
One daisy is half open and the other is drooping. One and a half, that's all I have. My summer dream is shattered. I am keeping them in this drawing!
The leaves react to the cold snaps, heat, sudden rains by contracting to a third or fourth of normal size. They are also more curly than normal. I also made notes of flowers that were not there by recording the stalks where the buds dropped off. This year there're a lot of horntails. I included two dancing in the air.
I still have memories of lots of daisies hanging off walls in warm summer days.. what I see in front of me under effect of climate change we are facing, memories probably stay as memories forever.. Good bye daisies!.. Good bye the dream sitting under flowering summer daisies umbrella!.. Good bye daisies!.. Good bye!
