In Old English, daisies were referred to as “day’s eye” because at night the petals close over the yellow center and during the day they re-open. The phrase “as fresh as a daisy” originated from this, signifying that someone had a good night’s rest. I love the hardiness of daisies, I often see their little heads poking out of the tarmac on my walk.
