A day’s eye

By Debra Dobbins

One of today’s Jumble words is “daisy.” According to Webster’s, it comes from the Middle English words daies ie, which (ahem) stemmed from the Old English words dæges eage. Those words meant “day’s eye.”

In the language of flowers, a daisy can signify qualities such as purity, faith or innocence.
