Happy St. David’s Day

This is the fourth time I’ve celebrated the saint’s day on this blog. Along with the leek and the red dragon, the daffodil is a symbol of Wales, of which David, or Dewi Sant, is the patron, and is associated with him. Where I live, in Eugene, Oregon, Davey’s Day is the day the daffodils usually bloom and, right on schedule, one of the daffodils in our flower bed started to unfasten its petals today, despite the rain. I always associate David with the coming spring and that’s part of the reason for my affection for him.

So, see you, have a Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant, you sinning bastards.
