Everyone will know this one.

Common Daisy - Eòinean - Bellis Perennis

Depending on your viewpoint these will either be the flower of happy childhood memories or an invasive weed ruining your carefullly cultivated green lawn. I'm 100% in the former camp.

It has been postulated that the word "daisy" comes from "day's eye" because the flower (in common with many others) closes overnight, before opening again in the morning.


I was looking through a digital "contact sheet" which contained the daisy photos. I was struck by how similar they looked to photos I had of fried eggs, which were in the same folder.

Maybe that's just me.
