A shamrock, of course

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so what else is there to post but a photo of a shamrock?

Plant source: I don’t remember; likely a grocery store.

The plant marker says: Oxalis (Shamrock), grown in Canada.


The shortest amaryllis

The tag said the height would be 12 to 20 inches, but it topped out at six inches, at most. The pot was taller than the plant.

And while the flowers’ petals didn’t quite unfold into perfect¬†six-pointed stars,¬†the blossoms were bright and cheerful in the middle of winter.
