St. Patrick's Day 2019

It's a bit o' green to help us make it until spring.  A little black metal tub is lined with a plastic bag to hold the potting soil.  A miniature "ivy" climbs over the simple triple arbor - just three flexible wooden stakes with the ends tucked in the soil.  Yellow baby tears grow along the back, with a clump of miniature mondo grass at the opposite end of the arbor.  Bits of gray Spanish moss are nestled along the edge to mask the plastic liner and cover the open soil.  Spanish moss can be unruly - just smoosh little clumps with your finger tips and put in place. Then use a pair of scissors to cut off the long stray ends for a tidier look.  Green glass pebbles add sparkle, along with the tiny leprechaun hat and coins.
