St Davids Day & Irish Blog awards

Today 1st March is St Davids Day in Wales,so I hope any Welsh readers are enjoying a day away from work and chores.These are the flags of Wales and St David, the dragon is the Welsh national flag and to the best of my knowledge St David slew the dragon.The daffodil is worn on lapels and/or a leek leaf.I don't have either this year as my daffs have not bloomed yet and the pesky rabbits ate the leaves off our leeks.
Catherine who writes a very informative blog Dispatches from the Deise nominated my blog for the Irish Blog awards it is in the very preliminary stages as yet but thank you Catherine for the nomination!Catherine's blog has been nominated in 2 categories both personal and food and drink and mine is in specialist!
I did not realise there were so many Irish blogs out there covering every topic under the sun!
I keep going back to the list and just browsing, it could take weeks to check out all of them, I feel I am in very illustrious company.
After the exertions of yesterday I may spend the day just pottering and browsing some blogs.
Have a great St David's Day everyone

Hi Peggy,
Congratulations on being nominated for the Irish Blog awards!
I have 3 Jonquils/daffodils bloomed so far with a lot of buds promising to bloom if we can every get more spring like weather!
We have a chance of snow flurries here today and real snow in north Georgia today. Very unusual Southern U.S.A. weather, indeed.

Have a great day.
Pam
