The Big Daisy

The daisy is a very common plant, found on every continent other than Antarctica.  The name daisy is said to have come from the Old English for “day’s eye” (daes aeg) as the daisy closes up its petals overnight.

Daisies are actually two flowers in one, the white petals being one part and the yellow centre “florets” are technically many smaller flowers clustered together.

Also, daisy leaves are edible and apparently quite popular in salads.
