Happy St.David's Day ! or Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus! for my Welsh friends. Here are some lovely miniature daffodils, wearing their yellow petticoats, especially for the occasion- 'every one's darling; the blackbird and the starling' . The blackbird and the starlings have been feeding under the apple tree in the garden. A calmer day this week after storm Doris, and hailstones.
As well as being the national flower of Wales, the daffodil is known as the Lenten Lily, and today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.
