The word “daffodil” is first used in 1548 and comes from the Dutch word “de affodil” that translates to “the ashfodel”. This word refers to a variety of herbs of the lily family that have yellow- or white flowers and bloom on tall straight upward stems. (according to Merriam Webster Dictionary)
The daffodil is produced and grown in Europe, however, the lovely flower is cultivated widely and can grow in most regions of the United States.
“I wandered lonely as a cloud- That floated on high o’er the 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.” William Wordsworth
Daffodils when caught by a breeze it is as if the flowers are waving to you.
