The title says it all. Where I grew up, the daffodils were typically not out until May. Even here in Ontario, Canada, April is a better rule of thumb. What about Ireland?
I’m working on a song based on a Samuel Beckett poem. The first stanza -

would seem to imply the double sense that the daffodils are marching ‘thither’ across the landscape, and that their appearance heralds the month of March. Am I vaguely right? Please confirm or deny…
