Why is a Daffodil Flower a Symbol of Hope?

Last Update: February 24, 2021

As I was walking around the park yesterday, I started talking to some of the guests. We were discussing the weather and how summer is normally our hottest time of the year, but for some reason, we have only had one week of hot weather; the rest has been mild since the start of summer in South Australia.

Weather patterns are changing, and the temperature was 4 degrees Celsius this morning. My husband said he thought he saw frost. I quickly replied, it's too early for frost, and if it was, Oh no! I had a horrible thought in my head. The grapes, we are only just at the start of harvest season here!

What I like best about winter when it's just about over, and spring is on its way. The Daffodil bulbs start to pop up out of the cold ground across the park gardens. They have a short life span that I wish would last forever because they look majestic and happy.

Daffodils represent Hope. Hope for the future. Many of us pick the flowers and take them inside. Do you know when the best time is to pick a Daffodil? Early in the morning or late afternoon are the best times to cut them and place them in water immediately.

Many different types of Daffodils have an array of colours, and some are yellow, some are white with yellow centres and so on. Some are small, some are medium size, and others are tall. All have exquisite flowers.

Daffodils are often used to convey the message of HOPE for anyone struggling with illness, business, earning money, getting over unfortunate issues, and hoping to make good at Wealthy Affiliate.

HOPE is a four-letter word that gives us a feeling of expectation and desire to make things happen, and at WA, we hope to develop a feeling of trust between us as a family of members.

My hope for WA members is to see change for the better, and hopefully, the issues we face will also change; after all, we are here to build our business from the ground up; otherwise, just like the Daffodil, it will be short-lived.

I hope our dreams come true!

Hi Yvonne,

Thanks for sharing your insights about the Daffodil Flowers and the fact that they represent hope! This is the same hope that we all here on the WA platform carry within our hearts when it comes to creating, growing and succeeding with our businesses.

Wishing you the very best!

Kind regards,

Hi Yvonne!
I enjoyed reading your articles about the Daffodil flower; I love it. I'm not sure if we have the same flower here in my country. I like the color of the flowers, and I like much yellow color my favorites. I think we are in a similar, Niche. And I'm happy about that.

Thanks for the share.

It is perfect to hear that spring is in full swing in Australia, both daffodils and tulips will not bloom in Estonia until the second half of May, so I have to wait another two months. Although I must mention that daffodils have a peculiar smell sometimes, they are still given to us a lot for Women's Day, which is March 8th.

In Australia, we are coming to the end of the summer. Autumn starts on 1 March. The Daffodils will shoot through at end of August in South Australia.

Daffodils - relearned something I had totally forgotten, thanks for the reminder Yvonne. Hope and dreams- that is why most of us came here- the hope of helping people while achieving financial independence - indeed I hope all such dreams come to pass for everyone and myself obviously "wink"

Let's try this again. I used to live in the high desert area in the northern part of Los Angeles county here in California USA.

It gets pretty hot there, something like 115 degrees farenheit in the summer and in the winter, it can get down to 4 degrees or so. Quite a temperage spread.

But when spring comes, the wild flowers erupt, frequent covering the hills in all sorts of colors. One hill might be covered in yellow. The next hill might be covered in blue. Some years this is incredibly beautiful. There is even a poppy preserve in the area. I forget how many acres the preserve covers, in the hundreds I believe. Some years, poppies and their flowers cover every sqare foot of those acres. It is quite a sight.

But the flowers are pretty much gone in two or three weeks.

When you start seeing these flowers, you know you are right at the door of Spring. The snow (usually) has melted at this point and there is a sort of excitement in the air. You see more wildlife (I have seen racoons, deer, tons of rabbits, coyotes, bobcats and once, a mountain lion). People reported having seen bear in area, but I unfortunately never saw one of those.

As you say, Spring is definitely a time of hope even though I don't grow any daffodils! I used to have a vegetable garden. I was on the phone once and watched a pepper plant get pulled underground. It was apparently some gopher's lunch.

Didn't have much luck with peppers that
year, except for the habaneros, which are HOT. We used to give some to the neighbors who used them to make hot sauce.

You are absolutely right in pointing out that flowers (even if they are not daffodils) represent hope, especially this year with the covid 19 pandemic swirling around the world.

Best of luck to you and thanks for your inspirational post.

Thank you for your lovely comment Terry. I would love to see wild fields in flower. I have seen them in photos and it looks amazing. I don't have much luck with peppers either. All the best Terry
