Why does the poet call the flowers ‘a host of golden daffodils’ in the poem ‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth?

The daffodil flowers are yellow and therefore comparable to gold in its colour. Moreover, the flowers lend the poet a kind of golden memory and bring him joy and happiness that he cherishes in his lonely moments. That is why the daffodils are called ‘golden daffodils’.
