“Loves me ..... loves me not.”

Wild daisies ...... this humble flower has long been associated with innocence, freshness, and love, perhaps the best known daisy custom is the plucking of its petals while chanting, “Loves me, loves me not.”

 

In magical circles, daisies are associated with the planet Venus, their element is water, and they are considered feminine. They are sacred to St John, and are an important part of the decorations for Midsummer’s Night festivities.

 

The daisy has a host of other nicknames including Bruisewort, Goldens, Balder’s brow, Dutch morgan, Dog blow, Priest’s collar, Bachelor’s Buttons, Bull’s-eye Daisy, Butter Daisy, Herb Margaret, Horse Daisy, Maudlin Daisy, Maudlinwort, Moonflower, Moon-penny, Poverty-weed,and Whiteman’s-weed ..... I just call them daisies :) :) :)
