Macro Monday, Today's Flowers #75 / Shamrocks in January


 
 
My parents gave me a bag of shamrock bulbs so many years ago.  Now my yard is full of these happy little flowers and they have even spread into my neighbor's yard.  We have a lot of blooming shamrocks right now in the middle of January.

They are beautiful flowers. Are they annuals?

How lovely! I wonder if they'd grow in my yard and think I might give them a try. Right now I'm delighted to see Johnny Jump Ups returning. I love those little pansy-like plants that the birdies scatter each year. I never know where they'll pop up but they always make me smile.
Hugs and blessings,
