    so… what do Narcissi look like?

    • AshiAkira says:

      I understand there are many fifferent kinds of narcissi. Those we have here are small white ones that bloom in winter. They are not so big as daffodils but they smell like expensive perfume. You know the Greek mythology? A beautiful youth named Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection on the well water. He jumped in and drowned. Flowers started growing in the place where he died and they were named after him. So in the language of flowers, narcissus means infatuation or self-love.
