I wrote this dance and couldn't get it to work out. A few years later in 1985, I tried again, and this time it came out great. I dedicated the dance to my parent's 20th wedding anniversary. The flowers they had at their wedding were delphiniums and daisies, which explains the name. I started working on this dance again when my father wanted to start calling contras and asked me for a dance which was easy enough for beginners, but not boring for more experienced dancers. I couldn't find any in my repertoire, so I dragged this one back out and fixed it up for him.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
