Artist Statement: Daffodils mean the arrival of spring, but they also always remind me of my father. Every year he would divide and replant the daffodils forming the border of our yard and the adjacent woods. Over time there were literally thousands of daffodils that would welcome us each spring. "Other flowers must have foliage to set them off, but daffodils can stand by themselves in a bowl, and their green and yellow dress brings all spring into the room. A house with daffodils in it is a house lit up, whether or not the sun be shining outside." — A.A. Milne, in the essay Daffodils
