the language of daisies


Cesme, Izmir
Daisies have been the subject of many verses. One favorite verse is young girls's picking a handful of daisies with eyes closed. The number of blossoms in hand told of the number of years remaining until marriage. What has the daisy been associated with in your society?

"He loves me....he loves me not..." Many daisies have lost their petals to daydreaming young girls.
