Freaky Friday - Psychedelic Fun!

This is a yellow daisy and red Peruvian Lily design.  The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity and new beginnings.  The Peruvian lily symbolizes friendship and devotion.

The word daisy comes from the Old English word dægeseage, meaning "day's eye".   The daisy was thus named because at night the petals close over the yellow center and during the day they re-open or “awaken”.  This is how the fun saying “as fresh as a daisy” was created; it infers that someone had a restful sleep.

There is a Celtic Legend about the death of an infant.  God sprinkled daisies all over the world when an infant passed to ease the parents suffering and to cheer them up.

The daisy is the sacred flower of the Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility, Freya.  The daisy embodies childbirth, motherhood and new beginnings. 

The daisy is actually two flowers in one, called a composite flower.  The yellow center is called the disc floret and the outer petals are the ray floret.  Because they are actually two flower in one, blending it such beautiful harmony the also symbolize true love!
