I came across these lovely, little Narcissus flowers today. I was surprised to still see them blooming, since all the other daffodil flowers have withered away already. I was curious as to where these flower species got its name from.
Call them what you may: Narcissus, Daffodils, or Jonquils. Accordingly to the Journal of Experimental Botany, the Narcissus represents the transformation of life and the inescapability of death, vanity, resurrection, and renewed vigor, hence, a Christian Easter symbol.
In Greek mythology, a man named Narkissos fell in love with his own image as it reflected in the water. His self-longing caused him to fade away, and he was turned into the flower Narcissus.
However you want to call these pretty flowers, have a happy spring!
