Celebrate March Birthdays with Daffodils

The daffodil is the March birth flower.  Also known as Jonquil or Narcissus and because of their long association with lent, the “Lent Lily”.   Symbolic of new beginnings and re-birth they are majestic as a singular bloom and are truly grandiose assembled as a large congregation.   The 18th century poet William Wordsworth captured their essence in I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud:

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

The message  trumpeted by the graceful daffodil  is “You Are An Angel”, as in a host of golden angels.  They are ever vigilant in their promise to return in the spring no matter the harshest of winters just past.

Bring a pot or a bouquet to an “angel” in your life.  Someone that inspires faith and forthrightness and is a symbol of inner beauty in your life.

Happy Birthday March babies!
