Daffodils Were Gone Now in Our Garden

There are no more daffodils in our garden. Their flowering time is over. I did not see that much in our garden because at the time they were blooming, I was always on tour. lolz!

I posted some  pictures of tulips in my facebook last month. One of my friends commented  if  some of the pictures  there are from daffodil flowers. I told him they are not but  they are tulips. Here are some daffodils  now for you.  Daffodils are different from tulips. Each flower has a central bell-, bowl-, or disc-shaped corona surrounded by a ring of six floral leaves called the perianth which is united into a tube at the forward edge of the 3-locular ovary. The three outer segments are sepals, and the three inner segments are petals.

Daffodils are also known as narcissus or jonquil. They are mostly spring-flowering, bulbous perennials in the Amaryllis family, subfamily Amaryllidoideae.

 The name “daffodil” is derived from an earlier “affodell”, a variant of Asphodel. The reason for the introduction of the initial “d” is not known, although a probable source is an etymological merging from the Dutch article “de”, as in “De affodil”. From at least the 16th century, “Daffadown Dilly”, “daffadown dilly”, and “daffydowndilly” have appeared as playful synonyms of the name.
