Flower of the month for March

In Greek mythologyNarcissus was a hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for his beauty. He was the son of the river god Cephissus and nymph Liriope.[1] He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. Nemesis noticed this behavior and attracted Narcissus to a pool, where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realising it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus lost his will to live. He stared at his reflection until he died. Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one's physical appearance and/or public perception.

On a cheerier note, you cannot fail to be uplifted by this humble little flower, all fragrance and trumpets. Also cheap enough to fill the house with your own host of nodding loveliness. 

We created one of our most memorable wedding bouquets of scented paperwhites, white freesia and 'Erlicheer' narcissus.
