Saint David’s Day

Hello everyone from a beautifully sunny Cornwall, UK.

Let me be the first to wish you all a very Hapus Dydd Dewi Sant, Happy Saint David’s Day!

I’ve blogged before about this day and it’s significance to all of us who are Welsh or have Welsh ancestry, if you would like to know more about it please click here to go to my previous post.

The National Flower of Wales is the delightful and cheery daffodil which brightens the hedgerows at this time of year. I picked some from the garden at Dookes H.Q. to grace our breakfast table and before I took them inside grabbed a couple of photos to share. I hope you like them as much as I do. My late Grandmother always said that when you take daffodils into a house, then you take sunshine into that house; I think she got that pretty much spot on!P1030030

Of course I also had to put up St David’s own flag as well!P1030045

A friend of mine once cheerily told me that there are three types of people in the world:
Those who are Welsh,
Those who would love to be Welsh,
And those that have no ambition at all!

Have a great day! 🙂

Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i’m gwlad.

Hwyl Fawr!
Dookes

Oh, I nearly forgot.
Well done to the Welsh Rugby Team for winning in Paris yesterday evening! Good stuff boys!

  1. I’ll have to try that daffodil trick your grandmother used. We have some growing now at the side of the house. Maybe bringing them indoors will cheer up this unusual March 1 gray,cloudy, dreary day in South Carolina. My wife has some Welsh in her ancestral background. will have to show her your post. Enjoy your beautiful day!

    • Thank you Bob. Glad you liked the post and yes definitely try the daffodil trick! Remind Mrs Bob that Wales is known as “The Land of My Fathers.” So she is one of us! Cymru am Byth! 🙂

  2. Being Welsh…. nearly as good as being Scottish, eh??? 😉
    Cael diwrnod gwych – bwyta cennin a chennin Pedr. Lloniannau. 🙂
    Happy St. David’s Day Dookes!

    • Well, it’s a personal view but I think it’s much better being Welsh, I don’t have to wear a skirt!
      Leeks and daffodils to you too, cariad!
      Thanks for the best wishes! Dookes 🙂

  3. Happy belated Saint David’s Day to you Dookes, from someone with no ambition at all!! 🙂 Like the post and daffodils! Nice bit of sunshine.
