Carpe Diem #1767 Daisies ...

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Our birthday month is running towards its end, 10 days left before a new month starts, and I don't know how you all are experiencing this month, but I like it. I think we are celebrating in a wonderful way. Thank you all for participating in our festive October month.

Today I have chosen the theme "daisies", we have had that theme earlier here, but ... well I hadn't one clou what to choose for theme today, so I thought "let me do a theme we have had here earlier.

What's the meaning of Daisies: 
Daisies are flowers that mean different things to different people.  It can mean cheerfulness particularly for the yellow colored blossoms and it can mean youthful beauty and gentleness.  Some people look at the daisy to be a symbol of good luck.  However, the most popular meanings attached to the daisy are - loyal love, innocence and purity.  It’s also a taken to convey the message – “I’ll never tell”.Apart from the Celtic legend that daisies were the spirits of children, the symbol of innocence also comes from the story about a dryad who oversaw meadows, forests and pastures.  One of the nymphs, Belides danced around with her nymph sister when the god of the orchards, Vertumnus saw her.  To make sure that she escapes his attentions, she turned herself into a daisy thus preserving her innocence.In terms of loyal love, daisies are used by women particularly in the Victorian age to see which suitor loves them the most.  By picking on the flower’s petals, a woman would know who loves her and who does not.

And to conclude this episode:
