I get ridiculously happy each year when the daffodils are in bloom. They aren’t blooming around my neighborhood yet (though I’ve got my eye on some green spikes) but they are back in Safeway’s floral section. I buy daffodils every week for as long as they’re available, and enjoy them immensely.
Daffodils apparently can symbolize all sorts of different things, but my favorite is as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. And they’re supposed to be good luck! For me, they also remind me of my first, life-changing trip to England. Next time I go back, I plan to go in spring…because it’s off-season for the tourists, and the weather will be decent…and the daffodils will be in bloom!
I don’t have any good pictures of this year’s daffodils yet…but here are a couple riots of daffodils from past years.
