Daisies

The fields at the edge of our garden were covered in daisies, huge man-eating flowers. According to the latest news bulletin they were slowly but surely covering the entire planet. The Autumn winds were helping the dispersal of their seeds. Germination was almost instantaneous and their lust for blood accelerated their growth.  I watched as a swathe of seeds were blown in our direction. Within minutes our back garden was awash with sprouting plants, long green tendrils writhing across the ground towards the house.  We sat huddled together upstairs knowing there was nothing we could do to stop them.
