daisy memories

These tiny daisies tell a story. In the morning of the wedding day the bride’s mother, aunty and grandmother worked together to prepare them for their special purpose. Wrinkled hands wearing many rings pruned and primped and set them out just so. Everyone was joking and laughing. The tables were covered in green stems and tiny white flowers. The bridesmaid took the opportunity to put some of these delicate daisies in her hair. The daisies are a reminder that the women of these families came together to celebrate a special day. They prepared the flowers, blessed their daughters, laughed, cried and drank wine – and it all started with arranging daisies.
