Ta-dahhhh! Minnesota is squeaking toward spring and yesterday I captured a photo of the very first daffodil. . .at least, one I've laid eyes on. With giddy pride I post this for Today's Flower's because I finally can show something current, real and lovely.

The old name for daffodil was “Affodyle,” believed to originate with the Old English “Affo dyle,” meaning “that which cometh early.” It ultimately derived from Dutch de affodil meaning "the asphodel" (of Greek mythology).
