Lawn Daisy (Bellis perennis)

Daisy, a photo by bill kralovec on Flickr.

I snapped this photo on a beautiful spring day Sunday. It was early morning in our yard and the daisys were just opening up. They get their name from “days eye” which comes from this habit of the petals opening during the day. The pink fringe on the petal shows when they are closed like this. The Daisy is native to Europe, but spread throughout the world. I’ll have to make a “daisy chain” with Ocean.

It never ceases to amaze me the wonders of nature even in the back yard! It is known as “bela lara” white Lara in Serbian.
