This flower won’t be paid much attention if it’s not because of the time of arrival: in the early winter days, come quickly and go fast. It blooms only 1 very short time of 2 or 3 weeks and then disappears. Some gardeners tried to plant it earlier but it was still right at that time for flowers to bloom.
According to Roman mythology, this tiny flower originated from Belides, one of the goddesses who cared for the forests. One day, while Belides was dancing with her lover, Ephigeus, she caught the eye of Vertumnus, the deity of the gardens. To protect her from this chase, Flora, the queen of flowers, turned her into a white daisy.
The name “daisy” is considered 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”.
The English Daisy is also considered to be a flower of children and innocence.
Daisy is used as a girl’s name and as a nickname for girls named Margaret, after the French name for the oxeye daisy, marguerite.
