[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bellis perennis, the ubiquitous lawn flower of Europe, and most other continents. Lawn daisy, English daisy, bruisewort, woundwort, and probably many other names.

Bellis perennis has astringent properties and has been used in herbal medicine. In ancient Rome, the surgeons who accompanied Roman legions into battle would order their slaves to pick sacks full of daisies in order to extract their juice; bellum, Latin for "war", may be the origin of this plant's scientific name. Bandages were soaked in this juice and would then be used to bind sword and spear cuts.
