St. David's Day

It's St. David's Day and Wales will be celebrating the saint's day of its patron saint. The floral emblem of Wales is actually the leek (Allium pornum), but the daffodil is more often used as a more attractive substitute. On this day, people in Wales will be wearing one of these on their lapels with great pride.
This gives a sense of the scale of Narcissus asturiensis.
The delicate little N. asturiensis is actually from Spain,
and blooms in my greenhouse around this time of year

So delicate and lovely. I bought a couple of pots of little daffs from the corner florist, they brighten the place but it's not quite the same!
