Hi all...

Thanks Webbie for another wonderful Mark Westlake video...Mr. M and I watched it together before bed, which I am heading off to soon...

This is the time of year that all our floral areas in the stores have Shamrock plants for sale. I think I will pick one up and try to keep it alive with my brown thumb...

Off to bed I go...have a good one ya all...

I think the prob with the video is the Mac - it won\'t play on Macs. Sorry about that.

But.....like most everything about our little island, nothing is straight-forward.

I guess shamrock leaves have grown steadily since my youth (90 years ago) but if we picked "shamrock" with leaves as big as what is presented nowadays as ""shamrock"" I would be told it was CLOVER then.
However, my expertise lies with the Petunia and there it must stay as the amount of misinformation in circulation about this particular flower demands my full and absolute attention.

Kisses to you, too, Treasa. Thanks for the shamrock info. We\'ll have to get Annette on this one, too. I used to be really good at finding 4 leafed clovers when I was a child, used to bring them in and press them in the big dictionary, and when anyone went to look something up, all these 4 leafed clovers would fall out. They are supposed to be lucky.

Sounds like oxalis that your mother had. Maybe several things are called \"shamrock\" in Ireland, the ones I have seen have very tiny, light green leaves. And you never see a flower pictured or mentioned with shamrocks. It\'s always just those little green leaves. I am just curious as to what, exactly, they are.

See ya!

That\'s a lovely shot in the Phillipines, Deirdre Murray, with the palm trees and the mountains. Thank you.

It was still a little chilly here last night, but we had a beautiful sunny day, and it will be up to 80F on Friday. I want to get out in my yard to do some planting, but I don\'t seem to find the time. I cut down my office hours, but I bring so much work home to do that I stay too busy. Something\'s wrong, I\'m working more than ever. I need to analyse this situation, and make some corrections.

Y\'all Take Care.

Hey Patricia,

Nearly knocked each other over there....

Don\'t know if the shamrock is an oxalis, but I remember when we were young, my mother always had a pot of lovely pink (hi Mar and Liz) flowers at each side of our front door which she called \'Shamrock\'. It was a wonderful shock of green and pink, but I don\'t know if was really \'flowering shamrock\' or what????

I don\'t think that REAL shamrock flowers, but I am open to correction. Catch you later Pat....

Patricia, I\'m afraid there are no four leaved shamrock. The shamrock is always 3 leaves. That is how St. Patrick taught the mystery of the Holy Trinity to the silly Irish people of 432 A.D. He used the shamrock as the symbol of the one God, with the Three Divine Persons... The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.... He was a very clever man...... So sorry, no four leaved shamrock.

Mar, thanks for the lovely card, email to you soon I think.

Off to bed for me now, but this is my safe haven, and the friends here are my true friends.

So you all take care, and I will catch you all later.

Love Treasa x x x

Hi everyone,

Great video Mr. Westlake.... that was Ross Castle in the final scene, I think..... I have walked that road so many times....

Mike and Kate, watch out, I may turn up on your doorstep. Thanks for invite!!! Have to check out Air Lingus...

Patricia, Mies, Liz and Mick, I thank you all for your support at this time. Yes Mick, you are right, Val is my constant companion, and our walks through fields, woods and beach are so wonderful. Even when I sit weeping at the kitchen table, he comforts me, licks my face and tries to get me to follow him. Dogs are such great companions.

And loads of kisses to you,too, Mar. Just have a good time with your sister and friend...don\'t worry, just pop in to this GB when you have time, we\'ll wait for

you.

Liz, are you talking about the clovers in Mark\'s video? Yes, I know they are not shamrocks, and we don\'t have the Irish shamrocks here, but I have seen them. They are a different family from clovers, I believe, which have a more woody and curvy stem. They are a lot like our oxalis, except the common oxalis here has much larger and darker green leaves. Oxalis is also called wood sorrel, I sent a around a picture of them underneath my oak tree not long ago.

Does anybody know if the Irish shamrock is an oxalis, and if it flowers? I\'ll bet Eamon knows.

Hi everyone, I hope you\'re all ok, I\'m having a really intense and busy week with my sister and her boyfriend here, but it\'s been a nice and funny week, only that I\'m sooo tired every night after working, swimming in the pool and after that, wandering through Barcelona with them... They leave on Saturday morning, so I hope I\'ll have the time (and the strengh) to write new and longer posts to you all this coming weekend, ok?

I\'m off to bed now, I hope you all are enjoying in your places, we\'ll talk soon again, I hope. Take care and have fun, loads of kisses to you all!

Mark Westlake, I love that video, both the pictures and the music. Thank you. Started my morning off right!

There are four-leafed clovers. Are there 4-leafed shamrocks? Does anybody know? Just curious.

See ya later.

Whatho old beans

Treasa - Bright and sunny here, but we might be getting snow before the week\'s out.

Love the pic on 5 - I want to hike along that lane and see what\'s round the corner.

Hi-ho back to the cutting edge of local journalism.

Morning everyone,

Woke up this morning to a blanket of white..... Yes, the countryside is covered in SNOW.... and more expected.

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes and words of support. It was a shock, but I had to take meaning out of it. I know Ken would have approved of what we did with that money. We had a family discussion, and all agreed that it should go to a worthy cause, which it has..

Anyway, now I have so much catching up to do, that it will take me all week.

Off to work now, have to leave early as the roads are very icy, and the thought of driving down that hill does not appeal to me at all.

Take care everyone, catch you all later.

Hi all....Hope all is going well with everyone.

Liz, Mr. Mies is all thawed out now...funny how he can stand the cold when out fishing but let the house temp drop and he complains about being cold...

Treasa, so sorry, since Ken is such a great loss in your life something like this will always happen. Maybe all we can do is realize that, brace ourselves for the hurt and live through it until the pain eases a little again. Easy for me to say, right..Hugs to you girl..

It is a beautiful day here, the sunlight is bright and strong and warm, you can feel Summer in it, though we had a chilly night.

I\'ve got a big old tire with a big rope tied to it sitting in the corner of my living room. It came with the Grandgirls on Sunday. I think its final destination is the branch of an oak tree at their Aunt Susie\'s house, where it will be an old-fashioned tire swing, but it didn\'t get that far on Sunday, so I guess I have to live with it for a week. Are tire swings peculiarly American, or do you Irish and Europeans and Aussies have such amenities? Great swings.

I\'ve got a lot of work to do today, I\'d better go start it.

Y\'all be good.

Mornin\'...

Micilin, I hope things go well for you.

Treasa, we have been thinking about you. It\'s not a straight and easy road, is it? We get knocked backward a few steps from time to time, and it hurts just as much as ever, and always will...but it doesn\'t happen as often and doesn\'t last as long. God Bless.
