I just learned this one. I was talking to my 93 year old mother in-law's older sister and she told me it was lucky that I had lots of daffodils in the garden. It seems that they repel evil spirits and bad luck. I wonder if they're talking about the four legged variety?

She also thought it was great that I had iris because not only do they repel evil spirits and bad luck but they also prolong life. Got them in both the front and back gardens.

I also have peonies which ensure prosperity and as we know will ensure our daughter will be beautiful (she is, she looked just like a peony flower when she was little)

That's sweet. Those are popular flowers that get shared a lot over many years- why not believe? Thumbs up

That's very sweet.

I love that this year, yellowing daffodil foliage in my garden has been completely hidden by other perennials, including iris and peonies! Smiling

Oh, peonies would be excellent companions to daffs, for that reason. I never thought of it that way before.
Maybe due to the rain, the daff and muscari foliage seems melted away faster than usual. Or, I've been to busy to notice it. Or, there have been fwere days dry enough to look around, and all I've looked at are new plants and flowers Blinking
