Hi Irene, Yes outside of Philadelphia there are some large ones.  A lot of people will commute to center city from this area.   I guess Valparaiso is a smaller town.  

Hi Grace, thank you for both comments.  The daisies were ones we came upon last summer on a back road in northern Maryland.  I love using the photos! 

                                               Happy Spring!  ---Gloria
