A Shamrock and a Pea
A Shamrock and a Pea is a fun and tasty post! The oxalis plant is actually sold in stores at this time of year as a shamrock but it only resembles one. They are cute and inexpensive. As you see below can be transplanted into a teacup to make a cheery little window sill dweller.
My mother loved this plant and I remember hers being big and beautiful and always blooming. She had a great window sill in the living room where she would have all her plants growing. She really had a green thumb!!
The Pea!!! Amber and I would fight over the mushy peas that we would get when we were in Dublin, Ireland. They seemed to just appear on appetizers or main courses in a tiny bowl and they were so good.
Ken had a fetish for turnips when we were there so he let Amber and I battle it out for the mushy peas!!! With spring and summer coming, you could get fresh peas, which would be amazing!!!
