These are the happiest flowers I have ever seen. I don't know why I associate daffodils with happiness, because the first thing that comes to my mind is "Daffodil Lament", a song by the Cranberries. I've always liked daffodils. They remind me of some Disney cartoon where the cup part of the flowers are big mouths that sing.
I've only ever seen them sold maybe 6 weeks out of the year. When Trader Joe's had them, I grabbed 3 bunches. My mom had never seen them before. It was kind of fun watching them peek open and bloom.
