the friendliest flower

From one of my favorite movies, You've Got Mail -

Kathleen Kelly: I love daisies.
Joe Fox: You told me.
Kathleen Kelly: They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?
Joe Fox: I do.

I totally agree.  Friendly is the perfect way to describe this simple, yet beautiful flower.  I happened to stop by a grocery store that I don’t normally go to and found bunches of daisies for $5.  I couldn't pass up a deal like that so I’ve been enjoying fresh daisies all week.
