Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

As I was working and planting today I realized that I had the perfect
plant for the holiday.
The oxalis!

Not the typical shamrock but a cousin.
I think this one is new and
called Jade.
Not to sound like a commercial but it's
I just thought it was so cute. I wish it would stay that small
but it'll grow up big and strong like most of
the other plants.
Ok back to work for me!!!
Oh right almost forgot!
this also could qualify as a White Wednesday post!
so rush over to Kathleen's and check out the
other participants!!!!

Thank you for introducing me to this plant-it is new to me, but a perfect one for a St. Patty's post!

Dear Carole,
I have the oxalis plant in my garden only mine is pink. I actually wish that I had the white one !!
A clever choice for combining White Wednesday with St. Patricks Day.
I hope that you and George had a Happy wedding anniversary, Carole. XXXX

Hi Carole
Beautiful oxalis.. actually i only discovered what oxalis was yesterday but she looks all the more beautiful for your little bit of magic you've given her... Hope you and George are out kicking up your heels.. or maybe it is too early for that... Have a wonderful anniversary.... xxx Julie

Hi Carole,

Happy St. Patrick's day to you!

We have an oxalis plant over here, which has a yellow flower and it takes over the garden and is very hard to get rid of.

Wishing you and George a wonderful Anniversary.

What a perfect way to celebrate White Wednesday AND St. Patty's Day, an Irish beauty!
