  • Daffodils are considered one of the heralds of spring. William Wordsworth was inspired by their beauty, creating this lyrical poem,

     

     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.

     

    Continuous as the stars that shine

    And twinkle on the milky way,

    They stretched in never-ending line

    Along the margin of a bay:

    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

     

    The waves beside them danced; but they

    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:

    A poet could not but be gay,

    In such a jocund company:

    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

    What wealth the show to me had brought:

     

    For oft, when on my couch I lie

    In vacant or in pensive mood,

    They flash upon that inward eye

    Which is the bliss of solitude;

    And then my heart with pleasure fills,

    And dances with the daffodils.

    ~ William Wordsworth

     

    The History of Daffodils

     

    Daffodils originate from Southern Europe and North Africa, but some varieties can be found in Asia and China. Some claim that narcissus originated from Persia and was brought to China in the 8th century by travelling traders along the Silk Route.

     

    The flower is  linked to the Greek myth of Narcissus, who became so obsessed with his own reflection, that he knelt down to gaze into a pool of water. Sadly, he toppled into the water and drowned. The Narcissus plant sprang from where he died.

     

    The name probably has its origin in the Greek word of ‘narke’, which became ‘narce’ under the Romans, meaning ‘numb’ and is a reference to its narcotic effect.

     

    For more than a thousand years, Narcissus oil has been used for many different purposes, in both ancient Rome and the middle East:

     

    • Narcissinum was the name the Romans gave the fragrance they created using narcissus unguent.
    • In Arabia it was used in perfumery but also to cure baldness
    • In India, the oil of the narcissus (as well as fragrant oils of sandal, jasmine, and rose), is utilised during ritual cleaning before attending prayers.
    • The French used it as a scent in early cosmetics (powders, soaps and lipsticks) but they also treated epilepsy and hysteria with it
    • In China narcissus is associated with good fortune and gain. Even today, narcissus remains as a symbol of awakening and hope.
    •  

    Their common name is Daffodil and their Latin, botanical name Narcissus.
