Clover Forest

Our house is churning with anticipation of our leprechaun, Hamish, paying us a visit. My boys are busily building a leprechaun trap and counting down the hours until he may arrive.

These Irish traditions are from my husband’s family. They include a day filled with Irish music, boiled potatoes, cooked cabbage, soda bread and corn beef. My favorite part is the flour footprints indicating where our leprechaun scurried about looking for our gold and beer. If we are lucky enough to catch him, he may turn into a bunny.

  1. I couldn’t put my finger on what it was, but something looked different when I visited your blog today. Maybe it’s the black and white photo that goes so well with your design? The overall impression is very appealing to the eye. Beautiful photo 🙂 Enjoy your day!

    1. Thanks so much, Maria. It may be the “posts I like” section on the right-hand side. They change all the time depending on my likes each day 🙂 So, sometimes they go well with my post! It was fun to get down on the forest floor in my yard and see the clovers so close.

    1. Yes! Spring indeed. The brilliant green is beautiful but I liked the mystery brought out by the monochrome version. Fun to feel part of the clover forest for a bit 🙂 Thank you, Ritva.

  2. Love the B&W and love your St Patty’s day traditions! Sending lots of love and luck o’ the Irish XOXO

    1. Thanks so much, Britt. Sorry to be so late to get back to you. Vertigo is such a rabbit hole to fall into! I love celebrating as your family did, the boys do to! love and hugs to you and sweet Samson.

  3. What a delightful day it must be for your boys. I was unfamiliar with the traditions you described and fell in love with the idea of a leprechaun leaving flour footprints. Such fun.
