Daffodils are said to symbolise not only friendship but also new beginnings. They are one of the first signs of Spring and are also strongly associated with Easter because of this reason.
Despite the reduction in their numbers one of the most delightful signs of spring remains the sight of hares leaping in the air, apparently engaged in a boxing match. Once seen it is obvious why “Mad as a March hare” is an expression the British have used for 600 years!
See if you can spot any daffodils or hares if you venture out this weekend.
