The name 'daisy' derives from the Anglo Saxon 'daeges eage', 'day's eye', because the flower opens in the day but closes at night. The daisy has a special place in our hearts because it’s an early sign of Spring and the coming of longer days and for its resilience, being able to survive being frequently trampled on. A long association with children making daisy chains makes it the flower of innocence and new beginnings, wearing the daisy chain will protect you from being abducted by fairies. Daisies are also associated to love with the idea you can pick the petals while saying ‘loves me, loves me not’ to learn if your desired one feels the same and sleeping with a daisy under your pillow is thought to encourage the return of an absent lover.
