So I'm buying a few bunches today and a random dude comes up behind me and goes "Ah, daffodils! You must be English!"
Taken aback, I agree that yes, I am indeed English.
"William Shakespeare!" says he. "Beautiful poet! Daffodils!"
"Oh, Wordsworth," I say, because William and daffodils conjours up Beside the lake, beneath the trees &c.
"Yes! William Shakespeare Wordsworth!"
So there you have it. Random encounter with daffodils.
* Closely followed by stargazer lilies, hyacinths, and lilacs, if anyone's keeping track.
