Daisy in bloom, “Everlasting Pretty” with background darkened

So much symmetry, a bright flower, petals silky white, stretching in all directions, yellow center unfolding in yellow, mathematical spendor.

There are so many beautiful Daisies along the path this time of year along the Jubilee trail. I wanted to make this daisy stand out.

The scientific name for the daisy is Bellis perennis. Bellis is Latin for pretty, and perennis for everlasting. Everlasting Pretty!

According to Wikipedia, “the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning. Chaucer called it “eye of the day”. And, “The English Daisy is also considered to be a flower of children and innocence.”

Irregardless, I love this flower, its magical mathematical symmetry, its shining in the sunshine.
