It may still be winter but in Dorset the daffodils are poking their heads firmly out of the ground. Have you got one in bloom yet? If so, do post a picture on our Dorset View Facebook page for others to see.
Friends: They are the birth flower for March
Romans: They were introduced into gardens in about 300BC and were brought to Britain by the Romans
Countrymen: They are part of the narcissus family, which has over 50 species
Lend me your ears: The petals are mostly yellow or white and the cups (coronas) come in a variety of colours: pink, orange, red, green, yellow or white or a combination of these colours.
