A native of wales.
Often, the daffodil is understood to represent “death of youth, desire, art, grace, beauty, deep regard.” David Owen was not especially young when he died. Are the daffodils meant to show that he was artful? Held in deep regard?
Before we jump to conclusions, let’s throw more information into the mix: The Owens marker tells us (although it is difficult to read in the photo above) that David Owens, like many early settlers in Radnor, Ohio, was a native of Wales.
You guessed it: The daffodil is the national flower of Wales.
