Okay, so they aren't green, but I did buy some green ones too. These purple shamrocks are huge and I am going to plant them today. What better day to plant them than on a warm, sunny St. Patrick's Day?
It is a big holiday in the US too. They dye rivers green and have parades and celebrations. I read that one of the things they do is drowning the shamrock, which is putting one in the bottom of a glass and filling it with beer or whiskey.
The grandkids have gone to the farm for the weekend with their Poppa T. and took green clothing with them so they wouldn't get pinched.
I've heard Ireland is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I named my first child, Erin.
Erin go bragh.
