The Wild Daffodils, or ‘Affo Dyle’, meaning “that which cometh early”, are beginning to reveal their colour in Rosedale, heralding the end of winter and the promise of warm sunshine.
Wild daffodils, Narcissus pseudonarcissus, grow in abundance in Rosedale and elsewhere on the North York Moors, particularly along North Dale Beck and in the village Church Yard.
The myths and folklore surrounding the flower are plentiful. The Latin name for daffodil is thought to have been inspired by Narcissus, who was a figure in Greek mythology said to have fallen in love with his reflection in a pool of water.
Whatever the stories, lore and history surrounding the flower, the simple experience of seeing their cheerful, colourful blooms, lifts the spirits, as it heralds the arrival of spring.
