It is the first flower of spring. It is Mother Nature’s symbol of hope.
The daffodil, with its brilliant yellow petals, has been sold every year in Fort Frances by the sororities as their way of supporting the Canadian Cancer Society.
In my household, I’ve been bringing those fresh daffodils home for more than 35 years. The local sorority would have a sign-up sheet for daffodils at the newspaper, and my sister would go around encouraging everyone on staff to buy at least one bunch.
