D is for…

Just when you thought I wasn’t going to get to “D” in time:
daffodil in bud

I was hoping that this forced daffodil would be flowering by today, but it was not to be. Here is one from last year:

Bunch of Daffodils

Here is another symbol to represent what I am using for my D:

Leek

I know it is a Leek. Leeks and/or daffodils are worn by the Welsh on March 1st to celebrate St David‘s Day. He is the patron saint of Wales, of which I loosely descended (it explains the “e” in my last name) and of Vegetarians, of which I am also one. St David was a pretty cool dude who founded the Christian church in South Wales. I have visited the cathedral dedicated to him, which is in the smallest city in Great Britain, since city status there is dependent on where there is a cathedral.

Happy St David’s Day!
