These hand-blown vases perfectly offset the ruffled petals and cheery color of daffodils. Their scientific name “Narcissus” comes from the Greek legend of a young man by the same name, who fell so in love with his own gorgeous reflection while gazing into a river that he tumbled into the water and drowned. The flower was said to have sprung up along the bank where Narcissus sat admiring himself. (Notice that the head of a daffodil is bent downward toward the ground, as if looking for its own reflection.)
