A wildflower that is part of the aster family, daisies are associated with purity, innocence, beauty, patience and loyal love. The name “daisy” was derived from “daes eage,” an Anglo Saxon term. A daisy was called “daes eage” or “day’s eye” because these flowers open during the day and close during the night. The Celtics connected daisies with innocence. They believed that daisies came from the spirits of children who had died. To consol their parent’s grief and bring them peace, God sprinkled the flowers over all the earth. Having battled leukemia as a young teen, this association is especially poignant.
Symbolically, daisies bring sunshine into people’s lives, and regardless of our circumstances, we all need a little more sunshine in our lives. I hope this piece will bring joy and beauty its new home, and that it is fully enjoyed by all who view it.
