I needed to break out of the seasonal affectiveness disorder (brought on this time of year due to the short days here in the Pacific Northwest) and go for a little bit of spring color for a few days. Daffodils are right up there as one of my favorites. They are a symbol of Wales … along with the leek. Some sources indicate that the leek (welsh: cenhinen) was the original and the daffodil was introduced later as a result of it being referred to as St. Peter’s leek (cenhinen Bedr).
Either way, I like them because (besides being Welsh) I can grow them in the front yard and the deer don’t eat them.
