Daisies are the colorful Birth Flower of April that convey happiness and cheer all over the world. They belong to the Chrysanthemum family and are perennials. They are said to symbolize innocence and new beginnings, and they’re sometimes used to predict love’s fortune, too.
Daisies come in dozens of shapes, sizes, colors and varieties. They are actually two flowers in one - the cluster of tiny yellow disc petals that form the "eye" and then the larger outer floret petals at the periphery. Their name, "daisy," is thought to come from the Old English "daes eage", meaning "day's eye” because of the way a daisy opens up at dawn.
And they’re more than just a pretty face! Daisy leaves are edible and can be used in salads (they are similar to an artichoke and are high in Vitamin C) and some kinds of daisies, such as echinacea, arnica, and chamomile, have medicinal properties that include relief of indigestion and the easing of coughs and congestion.

I love daisies. From the lowly curbside white and yellow to the elegant shasta daisies. The blue daisies photographed here are beautiful. I don't believe I've ever seen them before. I pick up a bouquet mixed crazy daisies at least once a month to brighten up my home. Anyone who knows me knows that instead of roses on special occasions, I prefer daisies.
ooops well I didn't read the question right-love the English daisies sorry I can't delete my wrong answer!
I really like Roses, but columbine is also pretty awesome
I like English Daisies
I have and enjoy gerbera daisies but would love to have the Crown and Swan River varieties. Daisies make me happy!
