Daffodils seem to embody happiness with their cheery faces and trumpet-like middle cup. We often think of daffodils as yellow, but they come in other colors, too, like green, pink and orange. In fact, there are more than 40 species.

Daffodils symbolize regard and different shades of affection, ranging from "the sun is always shining when I'm with you" to unequalled love. These hardy bulbs sprout up and bloom during rainy spring months. They have no scent and are inexpensive, making them relatively easy on people with allergies and on your wallet! Bundle them together in a bouquet or display them in ceramic pot.
