The bright yellow color is the most characteristic of the daffodils, but you can also find them in white or salmon shades. And, did you know that they also have other shapes different from the commonly known ones?
They exist with or without leaves, with the longest trumpets, and even with or without fragrance. These beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers grow naturally in meadows, forests, and rocky terrains in Western Europe.
The story that accompanies this flower is somewhat dramatic. Legend has it that Narcissus, a young and handsome Greek man who despised everyone’s love, fell in love with a nymph called Echo who could not speak and could only repeat the last word spoken by her interlocutor.
Narcissus despised her heart when he saw her in the woods, and she was unable to answer him except with her own words. Then she, desolate and offended, shut herself up in a lonely place, and there she stopped eating and taking care of herself.
So she was consumed little by little, and she absorbed the pain until she disappeared and disintegrated in the air, leaving only her voice that repeated anyone’s last words. This voice is what we call an echo.
Because of this, the gods were upset, and all the other rejected women prayed to the gods for revenge. Nemesis (the attack) heard them and made Narcissus contemplate his image in the stream. When the young man did, he fell in love with his beauty and no longer cared about anything but his vision.
He stood there gazing at himself in the pond and let himself die, totally indifferent to the rest of the world. They say that even in the Styx (the sea of the land of the dead), Narcissus continues to admire himself.
In the place where Narcissus died, the daffodil flower was born, a symbol of selfishness and vanity. Today the flower symbolizes a new beginning, and the daffodil announces a new season.
