There are many indicators that Spring is well and truly on the way, not least is the progress of flowers. When you begin to see the Daffodil, you know that the cold fingers of February are starting to wane, and the optimism of March is just around the corner. This brings me to March 1st; St. David’s Day.
St. David, the patron Saint of Wales, was a Celtic monk, Abbot and Bishop who lived in the 6th Century. Tradition holds that he died on this day in 569. His life is remembered today as this National Day of Wales. Traditionally on March 1st many people will wear a daffodil, a National emblem (as is the leek) of the Welsh.
Outside of the Welsh celebrations, you will find many gardeners ticking off the daffodil as the next step towards Spring. Equally you may start to find the more fair weather photographers among us, venturing out with camera, ticking their own list of flowers captured in their photos for the year.
