3/1/2018 - March - Daffodils

by Lisa Britton March. 01, 2018 316 views

Well it's March 1st and the birth flower for March is the Daffodil. Daffodils are the flower of friendship and hope. They symbolize unequaled love and chivalry.

Daffodils became the symbol of hope in the fight against cancer for many years with the Daffodils Days Cancer campaign. Volunteers would take orders and deliver live fresh unbloomed daffodils every March. Over the years I have ordered numerous bunches of daffodils as part of this campaign. The blue vase that these daffodils are in is a vase from one of those prior years. You could order the flowers separate or in a special vase for that year.

I don't know if they still have this campaign, but I think my project for the day will be to find out.

Thank you - I did follow up and found out that in Ohio and the North east they are doing the Daffodil days for Cancer. But no one on the west coast is doing it.
