Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true…

Did you know the name daisy is derived from the Anglo-Saxon daeges eage – day’s eye – as the flower opens only in the daytime?

Roman mythology says that the daisy originates from the nymph Belides, who was one of the Dryads presiding over the forest and meadows. While dancing on the edge of the forest she attracted the admiration of Vertumnus, the deity who presided over the orchards. To escape his pursuit, she transformed herself into the flower Bellis, which is daisy’s botanical name.
