ONE!

I am hopeless with plants - they see me and die - but, like Welsh folk everywhere, I feel honour-bound to obtain some daffodils for St David's Day [coming up on March 1st.]  The carpet of daffodils that is Wales in the spring is something I really miss.

Daffodils are hard to find here but a couple of weeks ago I found a few bulbs, which I have been nurturing on the kitchen table. I was so pleased to discover that one of the plants had actually flowered yesterday! As you see, I am hardly likely to produce "a host" of them but I'm trying, Wales, really!

Let's hope your daffodils last at least until 2nd March, Pat! ;)

None out in my garden yet, only snowdrops.

Oh, yes, you must have one, Nerys!

Brava! I have terrible luck with plants as well...I had two little seedlings coming up, but unfortunately the neighbor's kid smashed my pot with his bicycle yesterday. Oh well..

Oh, what a pity, Hawkins Family!
