Wait, did we have a winter? I can’t believe the temperatures are rising and all around spring is in the air, especially when it comes to flowers. And what flower often reminds us of spring? The daffodil and that just happens to be the birth flower for March. I adore this spring flower and everything it represents for not only the month but also the season! The daffodil, which can also be called a Jonquil or Narcissus, is most commonly known for its yellow flower. I just love to drive down the road and see them popping up in front of homes, in fields and landscaped areas. To me they just say SPRING!
To many Christians the daffodil is also a symbol of Easter as it is believed that the flower first bloomed during the time of Christ’s Resurrection. The legend says it was in the Garden of Gethsemane during the actual time of The Last Supper which symbolized great sorrow and hope for much better things to follow. I can see the bright yellow flowers throughout the garden.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the daffodil means unequaled love; the sun is always shining whenever your significant other is around. After I read this, I thought how fitting that a flower with that meaning would represent Easter.
The daffodil is a beautiful cut flower for your home and its bright vivid color makes a beautiful bead for your add-a-bead bracelet. I have even got a few photos of some of the pieces I have created from the daffodil. So after you enjoy the flower around your home, why not bring them to us to dry and create a piece of jewelry you can enjoy the entire year!
