Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone.


Blessed be the Irish gardener
Horticulture with a flair
Genetic knowledge , engineered
Through years, I do declare!
I envy those with green thumbs
With dirt beneath their nails
Stone fences wrapping all their dreams
Envelopes of Gaelic cells
Wonder of this rich earth
Pastels of poseys nod
I couldn't grow a blossom
Even with the help of God
I reason with my jealous side
To seed...I do abort
This girl from Dixie doth confess
"I couldn't grow a wort!"

So be it. But do you know why the Irish have potatoes and the yanks have oil? Well it's because the Irish had first choice.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 3/17/2010
Nicely done, Susan. I had a good laugh. Thanks and God bless.
Reviewed by John Bidwell 3/17/2010
I would need more than the luck of the Irish to keep plants healthy- or even alive.
Much enjoyed.
