La Felie Padraig! Happy St Patricks Day greetings from Dublin!

Love it!

Love that combination of (narcissus- daffodil-jonquil) which ever one it is. It's beautiful.

Now that's a happy little bouquet if I ever saw one. Lovely!

Are those pink lilacs? Seething with jealousy... they won't grow in Texas. :>(

Oh the sweet smell of daphne. Happy St Patty Day. April

Ooo, lovely! (Another Texan jealous of your lilacs here!)

Pretty! Happy Spring, Alicia and Andy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

Perfect! Hope you get to hear some Irish music today (even if it's from a certain harpist's CDs!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Happy St Patrick's Day from Northern Ireland!

No daffodils in bloom here yet - thanks for sharing some blossoms. I was imagining a little leprechaun outfit for St P's Day. Love the Strawberry Ruffle by the way.

I forgot how much I love daffodils! You've inspired me to go outside and bring in some spring color.

Gorgeous! so pretty... just a few daylily tips poking up here outside Boston. plus snowdrops... but i think i'm still weeks from real daffies!

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful daffodil, so pretty! I love spring bulbs so much.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to the Paulson Clan! (my blogs been taken over by leprechauns if you haven't had enough of St. Patty's yet)

I love the beer bottle vase - very fitting for St. Patty's Day! Enjoy some green beer and celebrate :)

So pretty. I adore daffodils.

Beer-bottle bouquet--perfect!

With all your recent posts with the precious dresses and the smocking, it inspired me to do a post about the dresses my Mom made for my daughter years ago. She passed away in 1999. I treasure her creations and hope I have a grandaughter someday to pass them too. I have two grandsons right now who I adore. But seeing your beautiful sewing and the wonderful fabrics reminds me how much I love fabric and needlearts. Thanks for such great posts. And having a daughter is one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. She's 28 now and my best friend.

Wow! Lilacs, already! Mine are just starting to leaf out.

Very fitting since St. Patrick was originally from Wales! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

The pink blossoms are daphne odora! So fragrant, so beautiful!!
