"Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into."
~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
I bought this interesting plant as a gift for me on St. Patrick's Day. Nothing quite as classy as buying yourself a present, huh?
It just so happens that I'm completely and totally in love with my purple shamrock plant. It sits, quietly perched, on the kitchen counter and never utters a word when I sneak chocolate chips from the baking cupboard, or gummy bears from the candy drawer. She's a marvelous secret-keeper...
Every now and then, she yields the prettiest white flowers. The contrasting colors prove quite stunning and make me love her that much more.
Good night, dear shamrock plant. I heart you.
