"Picking Wildflowers At The Theatre" Ohrid Local Custom Tip by johngayton
Ohrid Local Customs: 38 reviews and 55 photos
I had no idea why this guy was picking daisies here at the Ancient Theatre but I took a couple of pics anyway.
A quick Google reveals that:
"The medicinal properties of Bellis perennis have been recorded in herbals as far back as the 16th century. John Gerard, the 16th century herbalist, recommended English daisy as a catarrh (inflammation of mucous membrane) cure, as a remedy for heavy menstruation, migraine, and to promote healing of bruises and swellings."
OK so now I know. And there was certainly a profusion of daisies on the day of my visit.
