Daisy is Making Sure that May Flowers Get Their Showers

You know spring is in the air when the flowers start to bloom.  Even here in Southern California where we don’t have drastically bad winters, flowers bloom at their best in the spring.  That’s why A Drink From Daisy is such a perfect ornament for the May entry in Hallmark’s Year of Disney Magic ornament series.

As the title of the ornament suggests, this ornament features Daisy.  She’s holding a blue watering can in her right hand and ready to water the flower, a daisy, that is on the ground in front of her.  Her left hand is stretched out to the side.

Honestly, the colors also help with the spring idea.  Daisy is wearing light purple and pink, which are her typical colors, but somehow it looks even more spring like.  She’s also wearing a yellow gardening hat with a pink bow on it.  I can’t imagine this ornament shouting spring any louder if it tried.

And that’s the great thing about this ornament.  In a series that is supposed to be tied to specific months (or at the very least seasons), this is great.  The colors and the flower in the grass at Daisy’s feet so strongly evoke spring you can’t think of anything else when you look at the ornament.

My only real criticism is Daisy’s left hand.  It just looks odd sticking out like it does.  But that’s a minor issue.

As with the rest of the series, Daisy is anchored to a nice oval base (which includes the flower she is watering and the grass she is standing on).  On the bottom of the base, you’ll find the 10 in a Christmas tree series marker, and you can use that base to set it out to display anywhere that needs a little more decoration.

The hook for hanging this ornament is located on the top of the hat Daisy is wearing.  I’m happy to report that this ornament hangs perfectly straight, which is the first time in months this has been true for the series.

Even with my allergies, I do love flowers.  Daisy making sure we get them for many months ahead really makes me smile, so I really like A Drink From Daisy.

What could be more magical than the entire Year of Disney Magic?

Original Price: $12.95

  1. I agree. This ornament shouts "Spring!" Love the colors, her flirty eyelashes, her jaunty little hat, and that Daisy's watering a daisy :-) Too cute!

    1. I hadn't thought of the eyelashes, but you are right - it's another wonderful little detail.
