Today is March 1
It's St. David's Day
David is the Patron Saint of Wales
The feast of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, falls on 1 March
the date of Saint David's death in 589 AD
The feast has been regularly celebrated since the canonisation of David in the 12th Century by Pope Callixtus II
But, alas, is not's a public holiday in the UK!
And even though we're not Welsh, we like celebrating British holidays!
We have been to Wales, though . . .
Snowdonia National Park
with it's breathtaking views
(Where the Prince of Wales is investured)
the town with the longest name in the UK -- and not even Jim
who is good with pronunciations can pronounce it --
I'm not sure the towns people can either!
(pronounced Betsy coed)
a favorite town on our visit
And one mustn't forget the sheep of Wales
More sheep than people, actually
And Daughter Sarah learned on this trip to Wales that
not all hamburger is ground beef!
And a great lasagna sheep do not make!
(you make sure that beef is in the description -- i.e. ground beef burger; beef sausage)
How do we celebrate St. David's Day at Linderhof?
With Welsh Cakes for tea
They're easy to stir up and cut out
You griddle then rather than bake them
And a plate makes a good tea nosh
These days tea time is either by myself (or myself and a book)
or husband Jim joins me for tea.
With fresh baked tea treats
Jim was in!
These are good little cakes, actually,
and should not be saved only for St. David's Day
which I tend to do.
I always enjoy your posts! I had to immediately google a recipe for Welsh cakes!
Your beautiful photos brought back wonderful memories of a trip to Wales several years ago. Everything was lovely -- the scenery, the people, the food. Our group had tea time on a sheep farm where the farmer's wife had prepared an entire table filled with tempting baked goods. I especially liked the Bara Brith, a bread with raisins in it. She even passed around the recipe for us.
Love the Welsh.
