A Nesting Doll with Daffodils is the perfect Spring-time decoration and/or gift!

"Sunny, yellow daffodils are a wonderful sign that spring has arrived!" (Old Farmers Almanac)

Nesting doll collectors usually have a lot of dolls with painted flowers on them, because this is the most common theme in matryoshka doll art, originating with the traditional red & yellow Red Roses Matryoshka doll.
