Spring came this week

In the UK 1st March is St David's day - the feast day of David, ther patron saint of Wales who died on this day in 589. Celebration and parades are held in many places throughout Wales as has been the custom for centuries. The daffodil is the flower of Wales so many people wear them on their lapels on St David's day.

The weather this week has been much like spring except that every morning has started with thick fog! It really feels like the gloom of this winter is being chased away by the sunshine, and spring flowers will be bursting forth. So far there are plenty of snowdrops in the garden but not much else as it's still quite chilly up here on the hill.
