The Wearin’ of the Green

The morning talk shows seem to be all about St Patricks Day today, and since I have a bit of Irish blood in me, I thought I’d celebrate by displaying some of the green in my garden.

No shamrocks are showing yet. I have to keep reminding myself – it’s still early, don’t try to rush spring.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    winter sleep. Happy St. Patty’s Day! though the

    Isn’t it wonderful to see the green returning in our gardens? It has been a long winter.
