The Day’s Eye

One of my favourite flowers is the daisy. So sweet and pretty.

The name ‘daisy’ is thought to be derived from the Old English dæges eage – ‘Day’s Eye’ – as it opens its petals with the morning.

Today’s image, continuing the flower theme, represents the Oxeye Daisy or Leucanthemum Vulgare, sometimes known as the ‘common daisy’, ‘dog daisy’ or ‘moon daisy’.
