Patrick's Day without Daffodils!

yummy green ice cream

I don't ever remember a St Patrick's Day before when the daffodils weren't in bloom.

It's like a vital ingredient is missing.

Off to the parade now : )

Rachel I have noted the same this morning. No shamrock either. First time for years that I could not get some in my garden. Of course Shamrocks are doing well in Croke Park

No daffs here yet either, but first camellia came out today.

My first one opened today, could not beleive it, but it made it just in time.

Am still waiting for mine to open thought they would be open today as it was so nice.

Nice picture of the boys hope you all enjoyed the parade.

Yes, no shamrock over this direction.  Mind you, I am always amazed at the amount of people who wear clover (and very obvious clover at that)!

Yes Rachel we are seeing the effects of the cold winter now! and we will continue to feel its repercussions for a while yet...........
