I painted these ones a couple of weeks ago.
The daffodil is the national flower of Wales, and today is Saint David’s Day.
Saint David is the patron saint of Wales.

The footpath heading south from Corporal Lane, Queensbury, BD13.
Shibden was formerly spelt Schepedene – the sheep vale.
It’s high up and my brother lives nearby. We joke about how it’s always 10° colder there than in Leeds – even though he’s only 20 miles away…
