Pic Today 3/22/10

Rainy days don't spoil the beauty of spring in bloom.

Daffodil's bright yellow trumpets are announcing the arrival of spring. But did you know daffodils (narcissus) are poisonous, and can be harmful or deadly if eaten? Family pets are at risk if they ingest any part of the plant, especially the bulb. So just look.

There are many color combinations of daffodils, which (in North America) are sometimes called jonquils (which is the Spanish name for the flower). In England, it's known as the "lent lily."

The daffodil is March's birth flower,
and symbolizes unrequited love.
If your birthday is this month,
here's hoping you received a big bouquet from an admirer.
(Just don't eat any!)
