These Narcissi were growing in a neighbor’s yard, the late afternoon sunlight setting them ablaze. In truth, beyond their genus, Narcissus, I know nothing about them—not their name nor where they fall in that broad category.

The western Mediterranean, centered on the Iberian peninsula, my flower book says.
