Daisy Indigo

At least I think this is some type of daisy. The indigo center intrigues me.

Daisies are hardy flowers, enjoy full sunlight, grow naturally in open fields. Simple and direct.
Used as a predictor of true love: "He loves me; he loves me not…"
as you pluck the petals for each phrase.

According to Wikipedia, the name "daisy" may have come from "day’s eye," because the flowers opened in the morning sun; it was called "eye of the day" in Chaucer’s writings.

A goal: To start each morning with an "eye of the day" for opportunity, learning, love--and have many nights of stars.

Those fields of daisies we landed on, and dusty fields and desert stretches. Memories of many skies and earths beneath us - many days, many nights of stars.
