  • The Language of Flowers Secret Meaning: I chose daisy, because obviously, I have very strong ties to the flower! My parents named me Daisy, since they had daisies on their wedding cake.

    In traditional floriography, a Victorian-era means of coded communication via flowers, daisies represent innocence, loyal love, purity, faith, cheer and simplicity.

    It's latin name, "Bellis Perennis," translates literally to "beauty everlasting." The common pronunciation of "daisy" derives from the anglo saxon word "daes eage," or "day's eye," thought to be called because they open at dawn.

    I chose to depict the theme of effeuiller la marguerite, or the "loves me, loves me not" game. I thought it would be a fun juxtaposition of an innocent, fresh eyed maiden plucking petals from a beautiful bouquet of daisies.
