Today’s flower is the Daisy. In the Language of Flowers, the Daisy connotes “Innocence. I share your sentiments. Gentleness. Loyal love. Purity. Faith. Cheer. Simplicity.”
Bellis perennis is also one of the flowers that symbolizes the month of April. The Latin word bellis means “pretty”; perennis translates to “everlasting”.
The name Daisy comes from the English words “day’s eye”, as the flower opens early in the morning and closes at nightfall. Legend has it that the Daisy can keep lightning away; for this reason, it was once potted up and grown inside homes.
And is there anyone who has never picked a Daisy and played the age-old game: “She loves me…she loves me not…”?
