St David’s Day
The 1st of March is St David’s Day, the patron Saint of Wales. Far back in my maternal family I have Welsh ancestors. My Mum and my brother returned to live there, both dying less than fifty miles away from where a branch of the family started. Mum was a teacher and she always aimed to have daffodils (the national flower of Wales) ready to share on this day with her puplis. As it happens daffodils are one of my very favourite flowers, so I am writing this post to share out some daffodil love and to wish you all a Happy St David’s Day.
I only have some tete a tete daffodils in bloom at the moment -Yorkshire is a little behind Wales as far as flowers go, – this picture was taken in late March 2016, bulbs planted in the lawn by me.
This lovely display is on my way into town, also taken late March 2016.
This picture taken in April 2016 at Newburgh Priory where we had gone to a Spring Plant fair.
April 2017, home grown daffodils as part of my Easter display.
March 2018, shop bought ones- there seems to be snow on the ground outside.
Wild ones in Farndale last year.
And to conclude- Rhayader, Wales, because I couldn’t write this post without a picture from Wales could I? I wonder what is your favourite flower?
Happy St David’s Day.
