For March I've decided to work on a variety of Spring-time flowers. First up is the Daffodil.
Daffodils belong to the family Narcissus,and are also known as "Lent Lillies" or Jonquils. They are symbolic of new beginnings and rebirth, which makes them the perfect image for Spring! It is the birth flower of March, and the flower you give to your spouse on your 10th Wedding Anniversary. Legend says that a gift of a bouquet of Daffodils will ensure happiness, warmth and good fortune. But, being presented a single Daffodil will bring misfortune. :S
They grow in a variety of colors: all yellow, yellow/orange, all orange, all white, white/yellow, white/orange, red, and even pink! Their blooms grow anywhere from 1-5" wide. And, they are poisonous, so... don't eat them.
I went with yellow for my Daffodil stems, since those are the type of Daffodils I remember seeing in my mother's garden growing up.
They are up and listed in my Etsy Shop! I can do custom orders for other colors/sizes upon request!
I get to work on a custom order of hair pins tonight, then I will be remaking my Daffodil brooch. After that, I'll start on some Irises!
