Happy St. Patrick's Day

I know I'm a wee bit late but I wanted to share with you the centerpiece at my Herb Society's "treat" table. Every meeting the members take turns bringing in treats and decorating for the season. The plants in the basket are not artificial, they were one of the members outside summer plants that she brought in last fall and babied them all winter. Now the impatients are full of buds and beginning to bloom and the fern is beautiful. Another member brought in her collection of leprechauns and fairies to add to the display.

Another leprechaun with a basket of plants.

My friend Beverly took a class on doing a self portrait with fabric. This is her real picture.

And this is the beginning of her self portrait in fabric. She has the most wonderful eyes, the iris are dark brown/black with rims of bright blue surrounding them. She captured it well in her picture.

She is doing a great job of capturing herself in fabric, wonder if we can get her to bring it for show and tell someday.
