Irish Blessings…

IMG_2790                                                           An Irish Blessing

May the Sun rise up to greet you- IMG_2367

In woolen warmth ’til Springtime..IMG_2346

May Lamb’s Ears and Shamrocks frolic in your fields…May Ferns unfurl in soft Moss Forests like Irish Angel Wings…

May you find a lucky freckled Lad with bouncing Irish curls…IMG_2371

May your plate be filled with Irish Potatoes ‘neath tender Cabbage leaves…

May your Lace be fine as cobwebs and Linens soft and worn…

May light fill twinklin’ Crystal while Irish eyes are laughin’ on misty afternoons…Then sip cream-topped Coffee and hear a Celtic tune…

May your friendships be as Wild Irish Roses with memories so sweet…

And when this cobbled lane has ended and I walk the streets of gold- May you find the Irish Blessings and know I think of you.IMG_2358

Love y’all, Camellia

The Trumpets have sounded…

The Trumpets have sounded too early this year, my Ice Follies were in bloom before the frost had gone away in February, the tiny daffodils at the feet of an angel were inspiring and the final flush of gold seemed here and gone before anyone had time to appreciate them for their bright beauty and silent song. Ah! A fickle but much loved lady, who wouldn’t envy Spring for her beauty? I vowed today even before the camellias take their last bow, that the first flush of spring green would not pass me by, ferns, fronds, clover and shamrocks ~ Welcome back old friends and lucky ladies, what would a garden be without your cool clever green? St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be the same without you!

Love y’all Camellia
