Hey Jana32,

As I suspected, daffydowndilly appears to mean the same thing as

daffodil

Hallo Jana32,

'Daffydowndilly' ist dichterisch oder altmodisch - es würde nicht täglich benutzt werden. Normalerweise sagt man ‚daffodil‘.

Hi @ all,

just FYI:

The catchy name 'Daffy-down-dilly' originates from the novel Little Daffydowndilly which was written by the acclaimed American author Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864). Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts. His most famous novel is 'The Scarlet Letter' (1850).

zur Übersetzung:

Daffodil = Osterblume, Osterglocke, Narzisse

Hi folletto,

The pictures are cute. Nice update to my knowledge of American literature for all Brit-focussed such as myself!

Here's another reference from British childrens' literature
http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2303/

Old Ben Weatherstaff has described the coming of springtime to Mary: "in th' flower gardens out there things will be stirrin' down below in th' dark. ... You'll see bits o' green spikes stickin' out o' th' black earth' after a bit. ... Crocusses an' snowdrops an' daffydowndillys."

Cheers
Ponshobbit
