Daffodils/Narcissus are some of the first flowers of the Spring!
A happy sign that that winter is over, and represent “rebirth and new beginnings“.
The name comes from Greek mythology about a young hunter, Narcissu, with gorgeous attributes. A water nymph fell madly in love with him, but he was only interested in his own beauty. The nymph cast a spell on him, causing him to be so enchanted by his own likeness mirrored in the water’s edge that he eventually faded away at the very spot, leaving only daffodils in his wake…..

1779. Eight-year-old Ludwig van Beethoven, called “Louis”, is already known as a musical prodigy. He learns to go his own way – much to the dismay of the people around him. Some years later, he meets Mozart during times of political upheaval. Facing times of family tragedies and unrequited love, he almost gives up. Louis makes it to Vienna to study under Haydn in 1792, and the rest is history. At the end of his life, the master is isolated by loss of loved ones and hearing.
