Eye of The Day


Hide and seek with a little Daisy


Bellis perennis
is a common European species of Daisy, often considered the archetypal species of that name. Many related plants also share the name "Daisy", so to distinguish this species from other daisies it is sometimes qualified as Common Daisy, Lawn Daisy or occasionally English daisy. It is native to western, central and northern Europe. The species is widely naturalised in North America, and also in South America.

It is thought that the name "daisy" is a corruption of "day's eye", because the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning. Chaucer called it "eye of the day".
Daisy is also a common girl's name and is a nickname for girls named Margaret, after the French name for the oxeye daisy, marguerite.

The peekaboo daisy. I can feel it looking right at me.

Here's my favorite daisy quote:

"If you live to see a single daisy, it's worth it."

Not mine, but I can't remember who said it.
