Over-Watered Daisys?

Hello. I have been out working in my garden and using a lot of water, and the hoses sprays/leaks, and I think my HUGE daisy bush has been over-watered because this morning ALL the buds are drooping. Is there hope? Is there a way to fix it? Thanks.

Let it dry out and see if that helps and if it doesn't something else could be amiss that you cannot see, like the roots being disturbed.

Perhaps they were "sleeping" or maybe it was a little chilly last night. It was somewhat cloudy this morning. I felt around the bottom (it's covered with some ground cover with purple flowers) and it did not seem overly wet, even a little dry. They look good now. I am not normally up as early as I was today, so maybe this is normal for them??

If they droop after the sun is high in the sky, maybe they need more water than they've been getting. :?:
