A Sparkling Vintage Life

D is for Daffodil

Here in far-northern Idaho it’s still too early for the daffodils to appear, at least at my elevation. But assorted little green shoots have started appearing through the melting patches of snow. Those of us in hard-winter areas take a special joy in the signs of spring, however small.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac website, the word “daffodil” comes from the Greek word asphodel, meaning “king’s spear.” Because they are one of the first flowers to appear in spring in the northern hemisphere, they are a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings.

Are daffodils blooming yet where you live?
