Feature Flower Friday - Narcissus (Holly)

Feature Flower Friday - Narcissus (Holly)

Hi there all of you Garden of Eden Flower Shop (and chocolates and gifts) fans! We'd like to welcome you all to our latest Feature Flower Friday! Each week, we will be featuring a different type of flower, the meaning behind them and the reasons you would give or present them to someone. Today, we're talking all about the Narcissus (Holly). Enjoy! We selected the Narcissus (Holly), because it is the official birth flower of the month of December. Also known as the daffodil, this flower is the impetus for the origin of the term narcissism. Per Greek mythology,  Narcissus was a young hunter who was well known to be very attractive. The myth goes that Nemesis lured him to a pool and that Narcissus enjoyed his own reflection in the water so much, he lost his focus and as he got closer to try and get a better look of himself - he fell into the pool and drown. In the floral annals, the Narcissus is known as the National Flower of the kurdish people as is meant to symbolize the New Year. Per Chinese legend, the Narcissus will bring gold and wealth to an otherwise poor, but good man. It also symbolizes the New Year in the Chinese culture. You can present Narcissus to the parents of a newly-born December baby.

I was born in march my son was also born in march my fiance and my mom where born in april the daffodil has been her favorite for as long as i can remember so it became my favorite also over 40 years ago. My mom passed on march 19th of this year 3 days before my birthday and as i was preparing to visit her resting place in the spring i happened upon this page today w/o a thought of flowers yet but i wanted to get a bunch of them already in bloom and not a bulb to plant but im seeing that is going to be a bit hard for me to do. Does anyone here know where Id happen to get a bunch of daffodils for her when i go and for myself
to put in my home at Thanksgiving as it would remind me of how thankful i am to have such a wonderful mother got 52 years and counting as she is here with me still even more so than ever she hasn’t let me forget the beautiful childhood she gave me that and so much more thank you Connie Lynn Watkinson for giving me so much of your heart and the love of Jesus i have to this day is all in part to you… Glory to God for everything and for giving me you to be my mom!

Love, Shawn
