Daisies



Every spring these wild flowers come up in our field. I call them daisies but I really don't know what the proper name is.

I usually call them daisies as well and they are pretty. You captured them so well. So spring-like!

I believe in my yard the proper name is "weeds to be run over next time I mow the grass/weeds"... :)

Dot: I think they are wild daisies. They grow up North later on in the year. The pictures are lovely.

In Old English they were called daeges eage, literally translated "day's eye". Officially; Chrysanthemum leucanthemum. As long as you're not pushing them up you are O.K.

We get them here too Dot.
I've always known them as Dog Daisies for some reason, but I just looked them up in my Field Guide to Wild flowers, and they call them Oxeye daisies.
It says American Indians used them to make tea to treat fever, and chapped hands.

We usally call them daisies too. We are so behind in all our flowers this year. :(

Rose said...

Nice shots...we call them daisies, too. So simple, but so beautiful.

Small City Scenes said...

I guess we all call the daisies and Oxeye daisies they are. MB

Good news, Dot. They ARE daisies! And in my gardens they are weeds, BUT in the wild they are LOVED. ;-)

smilnsigh said...

I'd call them daisy too. :-) And lovely they are. So old fashioned and simple and lovely.

And yes, I am way late in getting around to photo blogs. Yish...

They are leucanthemum vulgare. I call them Daisys and my French Canadian neighbours call the Marguerite. what ever they care called once picked you cannot help but play "she loves, she loves me not".

Andrea said...

The Texican got it right, saying the main thing is that you're not pushing them up. (lol)

I'm with Ida; pick a bouquet! They're better than my dandelions any day!

Dot,


They are beautiful- whatever their name! I LOVE wildflowers-you may have gathered that from visiting my blog! :)

Your pictures are wonderful!

quintarantino said...

A simple flower and yet so beautiful!

Paulie said...

Think they are just a wild daisy since there are many varieties of Daisies. Ours usually bloom in late August. They grow all over fields here.

Carla said...
