It's nice to see the cheery yellow of the daffodils in Big Wood, even though most are not the wild variety. The large nodding heads symbolise friendship, and the sight of their bright petals delivers an instant dose of happiness.
If you present someone with a single daffodil, legend has it bad luck may be on the horizon. Instead, give a whole bunch of them: a gift of several daffodils is believed to ensure happiness to the recipient. But that’s hardly surprising. It seems impossible not to feel just a little bit of joy at the sight of them.
