St. Patrick’s Day

It’s almost the weekend! Do you know what you’re doing to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

We have been enjoying almost-Spring weather since last week and that has us dreamy-eyed and getting the garden primed.

We couldn’t help our self last week, or this week.  When Renee (our nursery girl) visited with wonderful clovers, we had to say, “aha and absolutely!”  Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day fun.

Michelle delivered a few to First Friday to decorate a festive little table.

And, so you know: all shamrocks are clover.  In fact, the name originates from the word “seamrog” which means “little clover.” There are hundreds of varieties.  The sweet variety we chose have wonderful color and a bonus of vibrant little flowers that  bloom! {You know we’re all-about blooming flowers.}

Did you know that the leaves close up when not in the sun? Yeah. We love it, too.

So, the picture at the top of the perfect centerpiece for your St. Patrick’s Day tablescape is easy:

Simply take a head of cabbage, pull out the center to eat. Put the clover pot in a  plastic bag. And then, drop it into the leaves. Place atop a pretty dish.

We’ll leave you with little Irish blessing

Wishing you joys that are lasting and true,
A heart that’s not troubled or gray,
Friends who will travel life’s pathway with you. {us!}
And the luck of the Irish each day.
