Reflections on Spring: Daffodils

I love daffodils. I don't remember the first time I saw one, but I can recall the most impressive showing I've seen of them.

Easter time. Castle Hill in Edinburgh. The whole hillside was covered in daffodils. A similar thing happens in DC in the spring where Rock Creek Park lets out into Georgetown -- a hill side, covered with daffodils.

My favorite are the super petit little daffodils with cups the size of a pinky finger.

Petals or Leaves? "A ring of floral leaves surrounds the corona." Floral leaves sounds like a rather imprecise term but I like poetic definitions.
