Ox-eye Daisy

An ox-eye daisy
flowering amongst the weeds.
I leave it alone.

    Aha – I looked up Ox Eyed-daisy, by another name she’s a Black-eyed Susan. I wonder how the name changed?

    Nice verse. 🙂

      Not a name I associate with it here Jules, doesn’t the Black-eyed Susan have a black centre and yellow petals? Perhaps your Ox-eye Daisy is different to ours. Here it is also know as Dog Daisy and in Scotland where Daisies are know as Gowan I believe it is known as Horse-Gowan. The English Ox-eye Daisy has a yellow centre and white petals.
