The Living Forest (80) : Oxeye Daisy
I think everybody knows this typical summer flower, which is also known as the Marguerite. It grows usually in meadows, but I found this particular specimen in a woodland glade at the border of the forest.
Oxeye Daisy is native to Europe and was introduced into the United States, Australia and New Zealand as an ornamental in the 1800s.
In the past, this flower was often used by young girls in love in the game : “he loves me, he loves me not” …….and so on…….
