Delightful daffodil crafts for Spring
I hope you enjoyed this collection of daffodil crafts for St David’s Day.
I leave you with the poetry of William Wordsworth, and his poem about the beautiful spring flower which is the daffodil:
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
– William Wordsworth
