This week over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts our monthly Colour Challenge for March is Jonquil.
Jonquil is a hue of yellow. It is the colour of the interior of the central cylindrical tubular projection of the jonquil flower. The colour takes its name from a species of plant, Narcissus jonquilla, which has clusters of small fragrant yellow flowers, and is native to the Mediterranean.
The first known recorded use of jonquil as a colour name in English was in 1789
My little kitchen vase with its cropped daffodils is a challenge matched and in more ways than one.
A little Snippet – The narcissi produce a number of different alkaloids, which provide some protection for the plant, but can be poisonous if ingested. This property has been exploited for medicinal use in traditional healing and has resulted in the production of galantamine for the treatment of Alzheimer’s dementia. – Wikipedia.
