Daisy Daydreams

PULLING PETALS OFF DAISIES is a common innocent pastime. Whether strung together for a necklace or a crown, or plucked to chant he loves me, he loves me not, the widespread perennial flower symbolizing purity has been torn to bits for amusement since Victorian and perhaps earlier times. Some say even a dream about picking daisies represents great happiness in love. Luckily, real life daisies (such as the ones I photographed by the side of the road) flourish in BC. They presumably won’t feel the sting of their tortured demise for decorative purposes or in hopes of romance.
