daffodils on st pirin’s day

As the sun starts to warm up it reflects in the yellow emerging everywhere in the grass verges.

Daffodils and Celandines on the roadside

But when you see the arrival of mobile toilets in the fields then that means serious yellow – when the daffodil pickers come out in force. In the fields around Tregantle I spotted a portable loo and rows of daffodils waiting to be picked.

We bought 3 bunches of local daffs from the village stores in Anthony ( the last shop before the beach), they have lasted over 10 days and are bringing a ray of sunshine into our home. Spring is on the way !

Happy St Piran’s Day to all daffodil pickers -who were busy picking this Monday morning;  St Piran is the patron saint of Cornwall, his flag is a white cross on a black background which is known as the Cornish flag and can be seen flying all over the county. One of today’s events will be to lay daffodils at St Pirin’s Cross in the dunes at Perranzabuloe where the saint founded a church in the 7th century.
