In a Vase on Monday - Day's Eye

I have always loved daisies and since my childhood I have considered these simple yet sophisticated flowers some of the most beautiful appearances of the floral world. If I had had more space in my garden (and less snails!), I would have filled it with daisies ! Still, I have a few young clumps that I love watching these lovely sunny summer days. 

A few facts about daisies (via The Telegraph:
- are found everywhere on Earth except Antarctica
- the name ”daisy”is thought to come from the Old English ”daes eag” which means ”day's eye”
- represents purity and innocence
- a daisy is actually two flowers in one
- daisy leaves are edible
