We didn't actually do anything too terribly Irish, I would have loved to go to the parade, or maybe an Irish festival, but we weren't that organized. . . plus Ox had choir practice.
It was a gorgeous day. The kind of day that sets your green thumb to itching so we decided to take a trip to Linder's. I love Linder's, if only to browse and smell and soak in the colors.
We let each kid pick out a cactus. Ox named his David Bowie (he has been very impressed with the movie Labyrinth - both of them are, actually).
Little Frog named her succulent "Debbie."
Ox is so funny, he loves his cactus.
I'm just glad it's a cactus and requires very little attention.
What was especially cool about this trip to Linder's was their new line of Fairy Houses. My kids each have a fairy house that they decorate and redecorate every so often, so they were pretty impressed, too.
I would have bought a couple, but they were crazy expensive. I took pictures instead.
|Seaside Cottage, maybe?|
|Do you see the elf?|
|My favorite - I love the giant plant!|
I'm glad my imagination isn't dried up yet - I can picture myself living in every one of these little houses. I entertained a brief thought of buying them all and creating a fairy mecca in our back yard. But then I looked at the prices.
I think we'll stick to wood chips and seashells for our fairy decorations.
