|On a end November morning I found this daisy flower with dew drops.|
The name, "daisy," comes from the Anglo-Saxon "daes eage," or "day's eye." This is in reference to the way flowers open and close with the sun.
Daisies symbolize innocence, gentleness, and purity.

This flower is said to have derived from a Dryad who presided over forests, meadows, and pastures. Roman legend states that the nymph Belides caught the eye of Vertumnus, the god of orchards. This happened when she was dancing with other nymphs at the edge of a forest. Belides didn't want to be the center of attention, so morphed into the flower bellis. This is the daisy's botanical name.
Each flower has a message, according to the Language of Flowers. The daisy brings a message of innocence and purity, saying, "You have as many virtues as this plant has petals," or, "I will consider your request."
