Double the Happiness?
I don’t know about you but I love to see spring flowers bloom. I particularly look forward to seeing daffodils bloom. I can’t wait to bring some in the house and I love to share them with others.
If you have yellow daffodils in your garden …. pick ‘em and give ‘em. Simple act of kindness.
• Daffodils are perfect for those of us who don’t have time to garden. They just appear every spring!
• No matter the year prior, no matter the snow, the level of rain, heat or drought. Daffodils are reliable.
• Daffodils represent new beginnings. Spring is a season for growth .
• Daffodils stand for new growth
• They are strong, resilient flowers
• So much goodness packed into a small yellow flower
• Yellow captures our attention more than any other color
• Yellow is the color of happiness, optimism and the warmth of the sun
• Even smiley face emoji’s are yellow.
• Daffodils stand for enlightenment & creativity
• Rekindling excitement about things
• Daffodils add life to a space (keep away from dogs)
Give them to a friend, a colleague or give them to a stranger. Guaranteed smiles from the recipient and for the giver – you. Double the happiness!
So easy, so simple, so do it!
