Daffodils Mean Spring!

Spring has finally sprung! As I’ve walked around the Del Val campus lately, I’ve started to see the early sign of spring ( here comes the allergies). One of my favorite parts about this campus is the gardens of Daffodils that can be found throughout the campus. I found these buggers pictured below sticking it out in the brisk wind that is blowing today.

Daffodils are usually one of the first flowering plants to bloom in the spring.  Belonging to the genus Narcissus, Daffodils have over 50 known varieties and were used for medicinal purposes in ancient civilizations. The species are native to meadows and woods in southwest Europe and North Africa, and are one of the most common garden plants here in the U.S. This variety, known as the “Trumpet Daffodil” can be found in multiple locatins around the Del Val campus, most notable by the Lake Archer walkaway, and alongside the Feldman building.

If you have a chance to walk around the campus anytime soon, take the time to look at Del Val’s horticultural beauty!
