Daffodils or Narcissus is a genus of mainly hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs in the Amaryllis family, subfamily Amaryllidoideae, native to Europe, North Africa and Asia. These flowers symbolise friendship. There are between 40 and 200 different daffodil species and the bulbs are not eaten by Squirrels and other rodents as the bulbs and leaves contain poisonous crystals which only certain insects can eat with impunity. Their native range includes Europe, North Africa and West Asia.

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.

- William Wordsworth, “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” 1804

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
