Daisy Daisy-English daisy

I found this container planted with a mass of red, rose and white daisies near a church.

It is a bright mixture of English daisy (Bellis perennis) cultivars, from the tiny button flowers with yellow button centers to the larger daisy flowers with long, narrow and pointed petals.

They make me remember of "Daisy Daisy", the lyrics of the popular old song
Daisy Bell!
by Harry Dacre, 1892.

There is a flower within my heart,
Daisy, Daisy,
Planted one day by a glancing dart,
Planted by Daisy Bell.
Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it's hard to tell,
And yet I am longing to share the lot
Of beautiful Daisy Bell.


Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage -
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'd look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.

We will go tandem as man and wife,
Daisy, Daisy,
Ped'ling away down the road of life,
I and my Daisy Bell.
When the road's dark, we can both despise
P'licemen and lamps as well.
There are bright lights in the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell.

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do...

I will stand by you in wheel or woe
Daisy, Daisy,
You'll be the bell which I'll ring you know
Sweet little Daisy Bell
You'll take the lead on each trip we take
Then if I don't do well
I will permit you to use the brake
beautiful Daisy Bell!
