Daisies

The large yellow center surrounded by bright white petals has always been a favorite of the childhood game ‘He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not’. One by one, each white petal was pulled off the yellow center and each petal represented ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and the last white petal lets the player know if he loved her or if he loved her not. In adulthood, the daisy flower takes on a deeper meaning.

The flower is native to Africa and Europe,  with its’ name originating from Old English. The name ‘daisy’ comes from “day’s eye,”  which refers to the blooming habits of the flower. Daisies open their petals in the day and close them at night.

The daisy is made up of two flowers. The yellow center eye is a collection of tiny florets, while the white petals radiate from the center and resemble the sun.

Sweet Pea

The sweet pea is native to Italy and the Mediterranean. It’s a member of the legume family but the plant is not edible. The flowers bloom in a wide array of colors and emit a fragrance that is a combination of oranges, honey, and jasmine.

Sweet pea blooms were the forerunners of fragrant fabric refreshers – the blooms were carried in the pocket of clothing to provide a fresh scent.
