Every year a friend from church holds a Daffodil Day in her garden in aid of her church. We get to walk round her wonderful garden full of spring flowers and also partake of refreshments provided by her and her colleagues. There are stalls selling plants and cakes and other produce and also raffles and a tombola.
This year’s Daffodil Day wasn’t as successful as usual because of the awful weather on Sunday. There were frequent heavy showers often merging into more prolonged rain. The wind was very blustery and many people were put off from attending. Towards the end of the afternoon there was even a thunder-storm!
Richard and I arrived in the early afternoon and parked our car in one of the less muddy places. We enjoyed a hot drink and a cake while sitting under the awning. We bought a couple of small cakes and a pot of raspberry jam. We took part in the tombola and bought two plants.
This post is dedicated to wonderful people like Cordelia who work so hard all the time to raise funds for good causes with often very little return.
