St David’s Day


Field of DaffodilsToday is St David’s Day. As the patron saint of Wales it is a day to celebrate all that is Welsh. Many Welshmen hope that the celebration carries over to March 16th when they play the ‘Old Enemy’ (England) rugby team in Cardiff. In my case it is also a day when I remember all those in the little Welsh village of Pembrey who welcomed a rather strange Englishman into their family so many years ago, they may mostly be gone now but the memory remains, diolch…

I wandered lonely on the hill,
On a mountain outside Rhyl
When all at once I saw yellow frills,
A host, of golden daffodils;

This can’t be the Lake District
With rain and gales!
On March the First,
This must be WALES!

With apologies (and respect) to W. Wordsworth Esq.
Thanks to Petr Kratochvil for the picture
Also a massive thank you to all of you who have visited this blog in my first year, all 25,390 of you! A million thanks to you all!
