We dissected daffodils during Biodiversity Week and had a look inside the flower. We learnt the names of the parts of the daffodil. Flowers are quite fascinating!
Daffodil Day is this week. It’s on March 24th. This is the 30th year that the Irish Cancer Society have run this fundraiser. People donate money on Daffodil Day to help with cancer research. The Daffodil Day concept originated in Canada six decades ago. The Canadian Cancer Society began using the daffodil in the 1950s. Representing the first flower of spring, it has proven an iconic symbol of hope and cancer research & awareness since, and has become the logo of cancer societies around the world.
