The classic story about the man named Narcissus who was so self-absorbed that he wasted away staring at his own reflection until he eventually became a flower, the attractive Narcissus is the official flower for the month of December!
Another thing I noticed about the Narcissus is how similar it looks to a daffodil and that of course is because they are related – from the same family of bulbs! So perhaps, when you order these beautiful flowers, you will want to call them daffodils, unless of course you are giving them to a certain someone as a coded message!
The Narcissus are so beautiful and delicate and unlike many other flowers, come only in a select few colours. They are mainly white and yellow and even their centers tend to be yellow, though a few oranges spill over into their colour palette.
The white ones remind me of the soft delicate winter snow and the beauty of a simple winter landscape. I can almost hear the crunch of snow beneath my feet and feel the cold crisp air on my face.
Gifting a Narcissus in December is a beautiful way to remind you and your loved ones that the spring will indeed come again.
