Daffs on St.Davids Day

I'm was so mad this morning in Tesco , I always buy Daffs for St.Davids Day to remember my Mum who was Welsh. So off we trot to Mr.T this morning for a grocery shop and I knew they have a special stand for Daffs and what do I find NO DAFFS not a one in their special display.
I went to customer services and asked why on the day before St Davids Day they had no daffs , so she called the man from the grocery dept and he said no they had none and he didn't think they would be getting any in... he actually looked at me a bit oddly when I said but its St. Davids Day tomorrow! I actually now think he didn't know what the significance was.
I'm going to e-mail them later to complain and I will have to go out later and find some Daffs to brighten up my living room.. I'm calm now grin stdavidsstdavidsstdavids

I bought mine in the Co-op, but I am sure that a local Tesco had them.
Here are some for you:

Not quite enough for a vase-full but you could pick the ones all around GN grin

I've just bought some from Asda. The ones at Tesco were all tightly closed and wouldn't have made much of a display! stdavids

I bought mine quite tightly closed yesterday and they are all out today!

We need some sunshine to open the ones in the garden.

My 'vertically challenged' daffs are all out in my front garden!

Now you mention it tanith they didn't have any in our local Tesco either I wonder if they have not ordered enough from their suppliers,I bet you get some sort of excuse about the weather conditions affecting supplies.
I have some dwarf daffs in my front pots in the garden which are a delight when they come out,but I do love a vase of fresh daffs about the house when they are in season.

Embarrassing situation in M&S.
Paid for daffs at one till but spotted longer stemmed ones further on so hopped over to get them, brandishing receipt so as not to be thought nicking daffs. Soundly told off by customer (rightly so as she thought I was butting in) Smirks from the rest of the queue...... exit apologising profusely..... now daffs remind me that I was a silly old moo, no longer harbingers of Spring or of Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant (St David's day)

Did they have any dragons instead tanith?

Galen Sat 28-Feb-15 16:49:36

No! You can usually find them at your gp's surgery.

glammanana Sat 28-Feb-15 17:12:58

Thank you for the lovely daffodil emoticon. Please can we even it up a bit and have a rose, a thistle and a shamrock?
Thank you in anticipation
