Today is St. David's Day, which commemorates the patron saint of Wales, in Welsh, Dewi Sant. It's customary on March 1st to wear a small daffodil or leek, which represent Wales, but the daffodil is a little bit more celebratory than a leek.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to be in Wales on St. David's Day and was in awe of not only the beauty of the daffodils in bloom, but also by the sheer number of them. They were everywhere. I began the trip by taking pictures of them, but early on I realized I couldn't keep up and I'd end up with 2000 pictures of daffodils. They were blooming on roadsides, on the banks alongside the sea and in parking lots. They dotted village greens, were outside pubs and of course in peoples gardens.
