~ Hey it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend! And it’s my Grandmother’s favorite “holiday!”
My grandmother, Nammie we called her, (her real name was Doris,) used to live with us in an apartment on the third floor. We didn’t quite know how lucky we were to have her around all the time – just dumb kids being kids, I guess. But in retrospect, we were lucky that we had that apartment for her so she could be a part of our growing-up and still live independently. (It’s now called the John Mackenzie House – but that’s another story.)
Nammie represented the Irish side of the family as my Dad’s side is Scottish with apparently a bit of “Northwestern Europe” thrown-in, (thanks Ancestry.com!) So every St. Patrick’s Day, she would always leave us an Irish treat in the form of candy on our beds while we were out or at school.
So, in celebration of this very green occasion, here is a celebration of the day for your miniature garden pleasure and Happy St. Patrick’s Day from your friends at Two Green Thumbs!
“When Irish eyes are smiling, it’s like a morn in spring…” From the song, Irish Lullaby
Irish Tip: Avoid the green beer. Stick to Guinness.

Obviously you’ve never been in the Northeast or Chicago area around St. Patrick’s Day. It’s the biggest holiday (& parade) in those & many other areas after Christmas & Thanksgiving. Thanks for the adorable holiday ideas for a mini garden.
Glad you enjoyed this post, Michelle!
