Weekly Photo challenge: Fresh

Fresh as a daisy-not tired
This comes from the fanciful assumption that the daisy is never tired because it ‘sleeps’ regularly, closing at sunset and opening in the morning. The name of the daisy in fact comes from the Old English for ‘day’s eye’, from its opening with the sun as the human eye opens in the morning. Perhaps its petals, which close over its bright center at the end of the day, were also thought to resemble human eyelashes.

My wish for you: Hope you feel “fresh as a daisy” to get through the rest of the week.

    • Thanks for your comment Michael. When I decided, to use the picture of daisies for “fresh challenge”, I was debating (with myself) whether to share background info or not. I am glad I did! ๐Ÿ™‚
