Flower of the Week {Daffodil}

What reminds me more of spring that the Daffodil.

The Daffodil is the first of springs flowers that will even force their way through the snow.

Also known as Narcissus, Jonquil, and Daffadowndilly.

Narcissus the Greek god became so infatuated with his own beauty that when looking into a river and seeing his reflection he fell in and drown trying to capture his reflection.  At that point the Daffodil sprung to life at the spot where he drown.

The Daffodil symbolizes rebirth, new beginnings, and the coming of Spring.

Some of the more common meanings are:

  • Creativity
  • Inspiration
  • Renewal and Vitality
  • Awareness and Inner Reflection
  • Memory
  • Forgiveness
