Still life and urban sketching. Art and Travel.
Why do I love daisies? they are like little tender, gentle suns.
I hope to have a chance to enjoy a truly cozy Norman village again sometime in the near future. It is especially beautiful in the evening while taking a leisurely stroll along the main street, admiring the old farms, going to a small restaurant, having a glass of crisp apple cider with a slice of camembert.
I recently found that the word daisy is the french word marguerite , and in the Greek means “pearl.” The word “daisy” comes from Old English daeges eage, meaning “day’s eye.” Our word, “day,” comes from the word “dawn.” The term “day’s eye” refers to the way the flower opens its petals in the morning and closes …
Early summer morning, just before the sun lights it up, the moist grass appears almost black in the shadow.Watercolour painting of marguiritues, its called shasta daisy.
In the the Middle Ages daisies were called the “Romanov Flower”.
In ancient Egypt, daisies were dedicated to the sun god Ra. And the Greek name translates to “white flower”.
In my opinion, the ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ is wrong. it should go: “he loves me, he loves me dearly, he loves me tenderly, he loves me passionately, he loves me…” This way, your mood is guaranteed to be good, and the daisy is pleased that it was not in vain that she sacrificed her beauty to resolve your heart’s doubts. “Guess the right way, love and be loved”. And believe the daisy, because it will always confirm that … your person loves you!:)
