Irish Gardens

I've had a love affair with the Emerald Isle for as long as I've been on this planet. On days, when life becomes unruly, I close my eyes and daydream about an imaginary cottage ~ with a brightly blooming Irish garden ~ in some out of the way spot that never gets cell phone service.

Flourishing in this imaginary place are all my Irish Garden favorites:



Bellis perennis

Ox Eye Daisy



Plus lots and lots of cool, bright, soft and squishy... Irish Moss.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
