Happy Saint Gertrude of Nivelles Day!

Gertrude was a Benedictine abbess in Belgium in the 7th Century. Because she was so good at getting rid of mice, due to the many cats at the abbey, she became known as the matron saint of CATS (and cat lovers). She is also the matroness of gardeners, who believe that fair weather on her day is a good sign to begin Spring planting. Because of her hospitality to travelers, often giving them a drink to take with them on their journey, she is also the matroness of the ‘to go’ cup.”  link
