This is similar to what one finds around old cellar holes in the woods here.  
Along with daffadols there are often patches of snowdrops and squill.  Lilacs 
were planted next to the outhouses, often some distance from the home.  
Specimen trees can be sometimes still be found in the fields, yards and hedge 
rows associated with these old homesites.
Some organic growers in the Northeast US manage Narcissus fly by catching 
them with nets when they hatch.  Catching one female means 100 less eggs.
