D is for Daffodils


image

 

Daffodils are my favourite at this time of the year. They are so cheerful and colourful and they represent an honesty and a freshness that is characteristic of Spring.

Their bright yellow colour is a welcome and blessed relief after the drab brown and grey of winter. They have been adopted as the national flower of Wales, and whenever I hear the Welsh national anthem I think of daffodils.

imageI also remember my uncle David when I see daffodils growing in the grass verges. He died in the spring and when we walked to the village church for his funeral the verges were a riot of yellow. It was just after St David’s day too and even though the day was a sad one, the sight of the gorgeous yellow trumpets was a reminder of new hope and new beginnings.
