Pure and simple, but I love them! Bellis perennis is one of the first daisies to appear here in the winter. It can be found in meadows, lawns and forests. The plants make a sedative, a good antiseptic for wounds and grazes, and an excellent rinse for the genitals (or so my books tells me!) The plant has solvent and cleansing properties. Three other species of bellis can be found here in Crete, bellis annua, bellis longifolia and bellis sylvestris.

As you said "simple" but it works and you've even captured the moisture on the petals

Looking at your PF makes me realise how much I've missed over the Xmas break. I see you have continued to upload some wonderful photos. This one appeals particular, probably because of its simplicity and the beauty that it displays.

This is such a beautiful image Carol - lovely detail and light. I love the pink-tinged underside to the petals, the dewdrops and the the downy texture of the stalk. Can't wait for Spring to come - it is my very favourite time of the year.
