Red tulip from last year, 

 can’t wait until they bloom again this year. ~”I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.”  ~Ruth Stout

It’s the time of year for shamrocks and the closest I can come is Oxalis which is often referred to as shamrock plants. 

 I love the way these look red eventhough they are actually purple.  The sun shining through the back side gives them a reddish appearance. 

 They are so pretty yet somehow don’t quite fit the bill of the bright green image in my mind when I hear the workd shamrock. 

Happy St. Patricks Day anyway!

Nothing like a bunch of snow to brighten up a cold winter day!  The reflections in the glass made it twice as pretty. 

Thunder watched from under the cover of the front porch. 

Smart dog!

 Needed to take some photographs of boots for Best Garden Blogs and couldn’t resist sharing a couple of the REDS with Ruby Tuesday followers. 

I am always thrilled to find red accessories or red anything for that matter. So I thought I would share these wonderful reds which are available at Garden shoes Online and Rainbootsonline

The boots that is, not the tulips.  ;)
