  1. That’s interesting about daffodils. They are pretty common and I remember my kids picking them in our yard.

  2. I know! I have daffodils every spring, they’re one of my favorites. Apparently they can cause diarrhea or vomiting if ingested, and may cause contact dermatitis (rash) in some people. So they are just for show, not edible!
