I was in my favorite flower store the other day
and saw the most beautiful, delicate, spring-like
plant. When I asked what it was called my
friend Lynn said it was a Shamrock. Well! I
thought. The real flowers are a far cry from
the clover inspired greenery I'll decorate with
before St. Patrick's Day.
This little painting is my impression of the plant --
white flowers on pale green stems against
a background of leaves like butterflies. A
Have a getting-ready-for-spring day.
