Trellis triumphant!

I can only guess that Mrs T's note is connected with the fact that today is the first of March. She writes:

Heddiw yw Dydd Gŵyl Dewi, Tyddewi yw nawddsant Cymru. Beth mae Lloegr i gymharu? Dim byd! 

The only words I recognise are Cymru, meaning Wales, and Lloegri, meaning England. What on earth does the word Lloegri relate to? The Scots word for the English, Sassenachs, is clearly a corruption of Saxons. I suspect Lloegri has something to do with a bodily function...
