Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant / Saint David's Day

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant Hapus!
Happy Saint David's Day!

This is the same pot of daffodils that I put here exactly two months ago

Saint David's Day is the feast day of Saint David, the patron Saint of Wales, and falls on 1 March each year, the anniversary of his death in AD 589. It is usually celebrated by Welsh people displaying daffodils and leeks, the National symbols of Wales.

We actually fly the Welsh flag around here quite a lot.

I was watching Midsomer Murders last night (a repeat) and the main action took itself off to Wales. I love those hillsides with all the rock so visible. It all looks both desolate and beautiful.

...not sure St David would have had much of a "feast", as his monasteries were known for their austere regime. David himself was reputed to live on a diet of water and herbs...

Nice post though!
