Ecology and Folklore of our Wild Daffodils

As we move from the cold and darkness of Winter into Spring, the plants, birds and animals of the countryside shall be rousing from dormancy and hibernation. This erstwhile period of reduced stimulation is essential for maintaining reserves of energy for the growth and reproduction that follows.
