Trivia Saturday

How did Daisies get their name?The daisy flower opens its petals during the day and at night the petals shut.

When you look at the petals they resemble an eye's lashes.

So they were called day's eyes which over time was corrupted to daisy.

The daisy is one of the most common weeds found in an English lawn.

daisies are one of my favorite flowers. I have several kinds of daisies in my garden and love them all. Don't tell them they are a 'weed'. They consider themselves quite regal.
