Music playing ~~ Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do ...
"Fresh as a daisy" is an often used phrase but have you
It is a very simple flower with a circle of petals surrounding
They welcome you each morning and gently

And the Doris Day hit song of the same name
And of course ~ those wonderful hazy, lazy days spent

There are even "Daisy Fresh" products

*~*THE DAISY FAMILY*~*
Button Daisies[a tiny solid yellow ball]
Cape Weed [yellow with black eye]
Fleabane [mauve with yellow centre]
Asters [purple, mauve, pink or white]
Marguerites [pink, yellow and white]
Daisies belong to the largest of all flowering plants,
about 13.000 species.
The Michaelmas Daisy, or as we know it, the Easter Daisy,
comes from place as far apart as North America and China,
with Italy in between and it was from Italy, way back in 1575,
that the first Michaelmas Daisies found their way to England.
In those days they were called "Starwort" for their resemblance
In France, where flowers often had a religious significance,
they have always been 'l'oeil de Christ' or the eye of Christ.
