Its a Daisy Kinda Summer!

Daisies are my favorite summer flower.......

........they greet me along the path to my front porch...............

........they smile at me when I go for walks with the dogs in the fields...........

.........and some of the daisies I have are kinda crazy like this variety but there is one Daisy that just drives me crazy on a daily basis............

..........its a four legged kinda daisy!!!!! I have been having a hard time coming up with a name for this almost 5 month old LaMancha doe. She is the bottle baby I got back at the end of March and is EXTREMELY NEEDY!!! I tell her everyday she is crazy especially when she trips me up while I am pouring grain, or chews on the bottom my shorts, or sneaks out when I open the gate and runs to the garden, or chews on my hair when I sit in the evening to chat with the animals. She drives me crazy sometimes!!!!! The other day she got out (again) and was nibbling on some weeds in the field, right next to a patch of daisies. And then her name just popped up in my mind!!!

CRAZY DAISY!!!!!
Her official name will be "Autumn Acres Crazy Daisy".
I think her name suits her just fine. Now of course, as I mentioned before, daisies are my favorite flower..........and this silly LaMancha has been growing on me:)
