Can you figure out what A.A. Milne was referring to in this verse from his "When We Were Very Young" book?

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead."


Answer

A daffodil

The poem is exactly how A.A. Milne wrote it for his son Christopher Robin, and his collections of verse and stories of Winnie-the Pooh have been favourites of children all over the world.

"When We Were Very Young" was first published on November 6th, 1924.
