The official flower for the month of March is the beautiful, yellow daffodil. These nodding flowers are a sure sign of spring. With their goblet-like petals, they are also quite charming - like a tea-cup for pixies.

Also known as Narcissus flowers, they are associated with the Greek myth of a man who was so vain, he drowned while staring at his own reflection in a pond. Because of this story, the daffodil is often associated with vanity in Western culture.
In Chinese tradition, the daffodil has a much more honorable role as a typical New Years decoration. It is a common symbol of wealth and prosperity throughout Asia. The yellow daffodil is also a symbol of friendship in many cultures.
Daffodils have a sweet fragrance, and are a favorite among many flower gardeners for their scent and beautiful color. They originated in the Mediterranean region, and are now grown in a variety of colors all over the world.
