Dowson Road Daisy

A close view of one of the daisies in the clump of dandelions, daisies and daffodils off Dowson Road which you can see on Hyde DP Xtra.

The name "daisy" is usually considered a corruption of "day's eye", because the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning.

Whether this is the common daisy (Bellis perennis) - Bellis is Latin for "in time of war" and perennis is Latin for "everlasting" - or an ox-eye, dog or moon daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) I couldn't say.

A contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday.
