It would seem in floriculture that the daffodil, as most flowers, has many meanings.
It is suggested that the daffodil's symbolic meaning could be "regard," "uncertainty", "unrequited love", "chivalry" and/or "respect," depending on which culture and century your search brings you to.
But one thing is for certain, for me, daffodils symbolize Spring. I long for the day when the lovely yellow daffodil graces my yard with its arrival, a sure sign of welcomed springtime.
Here's to dreaming of daffodils!
