3/17/11 St. Patrick's Day

Oxalis (Shamrock Plant)

As the 'luck o' the Irish' would have it, my Shamrock Plant has a few little flowers on it.  In not too many days it will be covered.  This little clump has been returning for me for several years.  It surrounds my little container water pond. I send these photos with an old Irish blessing.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Perhaps St. Patrick was a Texan. We never see oxalis flowers looking that good!
