The Luck of The Irish is..Red? : Daily Art Practice
Have you ever seen a red shamrock? Last week, I took a trip to our local greenhouse to get soil and a few pots. While I was browsing, I came across a table with red and green shamrocks. I was surprised they came in a red variety and even more surprised that they flowered. This one was just repotted before I took the picture, so the leaves and flowers are in a bit of a funk. They did perk up the next day and the leaves and flowers fully opened. But aren’t they pretty? I love going to the greenhouse and looking at all the beautiful varieties of flowers that God created for us to enjoy.
What is your favorite plant to buy at the greenhouse or local nursery?
Recipes Swap: Daily Art Practice
February’s recipe swap had the theme: yellow. I chose a delicious Glazed Sourdough Lemon Cake that we love for breakfast in our house. I highly recommend this cake/dessert bread.
March’s challenge: Red. My husband’s grandmother makes cranberry relish every year for Thanksgiving, and we all devour it. When I got her recipe I realized it had a lot of sugar, no wonder we all love it. I went searching for a similar recipe this year with less sugar and I found this one, Jello Cranberry-Pineapple Relish. It is pretty close to her original and very delicious. Instead of using the orange gelatin, I use cherry flavored, and it is yummy!! I also use coconut sugar instead of white sugar to make it healthier.
I am joining the Tea Day Ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Numi Silver and Spice. I enjoy this tea because it has a mild taste with less caffeine, and of course I love the bit of spice.
For all of you that didn’t guess my February Queen from my last post, it was my version of the Queen of Hearts. Deb, Sharon, Elle and Elizabeth, all got it correct!
Happy Tea Day,
