One of my favorite group of spring flowers are Daffodils. They are bright and cheerful flowers that burst out of the slowly warming ground and bounce back from late winter snows. They remind us winter will end and spring will return. Picked flowers will last for days in a vase; long enough for me to find the time to sketch and paint them.
The flowers have a central bowl-shaped corona, three sepals and three petals. The flower color ranges from white through shades of yellow and orange, pink and red. The corona and perianth can be the same color, or different colors. There are single flowered and multi-flowered forms. The multi-flowered forms often have small delicate flowers. Some flowers are fragrant.
