At last, St Patrick has arrived, only 27 days late!!
While we had weeks of freezing cold wind, he was sensible and stayed firmly shut, but then last weekend, when the wind dropped and the temperatures rose ever so slightly, there was a hint that he might be opening.
Each day during the week , the flowers opened just a bit more,
The rain couldn’t stop St Patrick, he was going to open, no matter what!
Open at last, just a month later than he should be, but he was worth the wait!
St. Patrick’s Day is such a lovely narcissus, creamy outer petals and a darker shade of yellow for the trumpet which is very frilly.
A bonus is the beautiful perfume. We were promised a heatwave this weekend, well, all I can say is that the wind is a bit warmer and the rain is definitely warmer, but no sun, just a very grey sky. This means of course that my St. Patrick’s Day narcissus will last longer for me to enjoy them!
