Seamróg | Trifolium Repens | Shamrock

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

I saw these beauties while on a walk in San Francisco. I have no idea how they mutated into such a lovely blush, or if is an actual variety, but I have never seen them again.

I like to think it was a little gift from heaven, my Grandmother's Birthday, was on March 17th. You can have your Shamrocks though, our family tradition was to plant the some Sweet Peas together on St. Patty's Day. If they weren't in the ground by then - too late - the planting window has past! I'll never be a garner, but a girl can dream. Now go out and get your hands dirty!
