Every month I will take photos of the flowers which I will find during my sightseeing in County Carlow and around Carlow.
The Flowers of February were Snowdrops and Crocuses.
Flowers that represent March are Daffodils, sometimes called jonquils or narcissus, which are the birth flowers for March. Because they bloom in early spring, they symbolize new birth, beginnings, happiness, and joy. When you see them for the first time you know there is a Spring.
Every year in March we have Daffodil Day in Ireland.
This year Daffodil Day was on Friday, 26 March 2021. Unfortunately, again The Irish Cancer Society has taken the decision to cancel all Daffodil Day street collections and events due to Covid 19. We can make a donation online to support this Daffodil Day. Every donation will help The Irish Cancer Society to continue providing crucial services to adults and children with cancer and their families. We can also shop online for daffodils gadgets (there is a lovely mask).
Besides Daffodils this March I took photos of Daisies, Pansies, pink Hyacinths, and colorful Primroses. Some beautiful red flowers look like lilies, which I came across on my trip through The Barrow Way. I suppose they are Tulipa greigii, Greig’s tulip, it is a species of tulip native to Central Asia and Iran.
Below are my photos taken in March 2021.
