Sunshine and dew on the daisies this morning, just scrummy. The sun made them glow.
The daisy maintained a key role in the field of medicine during medieval times. The name daisy comes from the Anglo-Saxon “daes eage,” meaning “day’s eye.” It is a direct reference to the application of daisies as a cure for eye problems. King Henry VIII of England was known for his athletic physique in his younger years, but later in life, he relied on eating daisies to stem serious stomach-ulcer pains, among many other ailments. He also suffered from gout, which daisies were thought to ease, as well as fever. From the 13th century, physicians also applied daisies for treating wounds.
