St Gertrude, Daffodils and Dendrites

17 Mar

I learned today that Saint Patrick is not the only saint whose feast day is March 17. It is also the feast of Saint Gertrude of Nivelles, the patron saint of cats and the people who love them. I love cats.

The wind and rain have taken their toll on the Daffodils in our front garden so I cut all the ones that have broken stems and brought them in. There are still lots in the garden. .

I love this time of year where I get to play with water on the stone slabs and re-discover the beautiful dendrites while cleaning up the paving.

      Daffodils are always part of the celebration of St Piran, patron Saint of Cornwall and also on March 1st for St David’s Day. 🙂
