Daisy Explained

Why does my mother's tandem bike have a boquet of daisies on it?

Long, Long ago there was a folk song which referred to a bicycle built for two. The lyrics went like this:

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'll look sweet

Upon the seat

Of a bicycle built for two.

Michael, Michael, Here is your answer true

Your half crazy if you think that will do

There won't be any marriage

if you can't afford a carriage

For I'll be switched

before I'm hitched

On a bicycle built for two.

With that in mind the daisies carried on the bikes are in memory of the "bicycle built for two" song.

Very few people know my mom's name, however many recoginize her daisies.
