Daisies are our Silver

Daisies are our Silver, Kate Fishenden, April 2011
On seeing the daisy and buttercup filled meadow at Montacute on our way back from Dartmoor, I was reminded of one of my childhood favourite hymns:

Daisies are our silver,
Buttercups our gold:
This is all the treasure
We can have or hold.

Apparently written by 'Jan Struther' the pseudonym of Joyce Maxtone Graham, 1901-1953, and author of Mrs Miniver.
