A daisy … a pretty white flower in the grass that we are used to seeing every day, whenever we come across a patch of grass. As kids we spent hours picking the best ones and making daisy chains. However, do you know where the word comes from?

Daisy, Heart, Flowers, Flower Heart

It originates from the old English ‘Day’s Eye’ as the flowers would shut at night and open again during the day; the eye of the dawn.
