Who doesn’t love daisies? These beautiful sunny blooms are classy, simple, and the perfect flower for any occasion.
“The daisy, by the shadow that it casts, Protects the lingering dewdrop from the sun.”
A fan favorite, the daisy has so many different symbols and meanings.
The name daisy comes from an Old English word meaning “day’s eye” because the flower would only bloom during the daytime. During the night, daisies always kept their petals closed.
The popular saying, that’s a doozy used to be, that’s a daisy during the 1800s…pretty wild!
In Nordic mythology, Freya, the goddess of love, gifted the daisy as symbols of sensuality, fertility, and maternal strength—making these blooms a great gift for mothers everywhere. 
Daisies aren’t necessarily known for for their scent. Many compare the smell of daisies to that of fresh-cut grass.
