Happy St Patrick's Day







Given to me by Norma, one of my friends down in Virginia, it is incorrigible...like her.  It endured adversity at it's worst.  It was accidentally left out in the garage over the Winter.  When I saw the pot sitting on the cold gray concrete, I thought it was doomed.  Sitting in the unheated garage, it hadn't had water since the Fall when it was brought in from the patio.







Picking it up and placing on the plant stand with the rest of the houseplants, I gave it a small drink. 

 Within days, as if to say thank you, the old Shamrock flowered.

I have no Irish connections and no ancestors as far as I'm aware, and yet my school, in its infinite wisdom, put me into Saint Patrick's House when joined all those years ago. So I always have a soft spot for the date.
Happy St Patrick's Day to you and yours.

The saving of the green :) I bet in my house it would not have survived though. Plants don't seem to like me
