Fresh daffodil, spring festival with the daffodil. Do you see daffodils? Then you know it's almost spring. With its praise trumpets, this cheerful note announces the new season in a stubborn way.
COLORS AND SHAPE
Bright yellow is of course the most famous color of the daffodil, but you also have beautiful combinations with white or salmon pink. And did you know that the daffodil has different appearances? Leafless, leafless, with large trumpets and smaller ones, strongly scented and unscented. At least they have one thing in common; they all celebrate spring equally exuberantly.
The daffodil has a dramatic legend. The story tells that daffodil is derived from Narkissos, a beautiful youth from Greek mythology. Narkissos was so engrossed in hunting that he did not notice the nymph Echo, who had a crush on him. Echo didn't let that pass. She made Narkissos, when he wanted to drink by a stream, fall so in love with himself that he stared for days at his reflection in the water. Finally, exhausted, he fell into the water and drowned. There arose a flower that rivaled Narkissos in beauty: the daffodil. The flower symbolized selfishness and vanity. Today, the flower is seen as a symbol of a new beginning, because the daffodil heralds a new season.
These beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers grow naturally in meadows, forests and rocky places in Western Europe.
