Just in the nick of time for Saint David's Day, a handful of daffodils have opened in the garden this morning. The cold winter we've had has set many plants back - for example the snowdrops at Halfway Up A Hill are only now really in full swing. Yet this morning is bright and sunny and full of birdsong; the first few daffodils are shining brightly and little purple clusters of crocuses I had forgotten planting are peeping up through the grass. I can hear lambs bleating on the hills, and extravagant tassels of hazel catkins dance in the hedge with the slightest breeze.
Oh yes, spring is here alright - croeso i gwanwyn!**
* Saint David's Day
** Welcome to spring!
