How are things in Glocca Morra?

My walking buds are off jiggity jigging around Ireland this week, visiting castles and kissing leprechauns under rainbows. The closest I can get is a rainy Sunday walk at Connemara Nature Preserve just north of my home. We all have our own pot-of-gold experiences, and I felt enriched by my little adventure.

Except for one jogger who was not Fred Astaire, I had the meadow to myself. And I will share my gold with you.

And where is Glocca Morra? How are things there? Please send a picture postcard.

Buffalo gourd blossoms vivid in the rain

Catching rainwater, a pot of gold!

This leprechaun defies identification

I love this golden beauty, but it doesn't seem to match my initial partridge pea ID. Please comment with your ideas.

Finian's Rainbow--that was a big one in our family.

Oh, lovely and wonderful.

So far, none of my sweet peas have returned. I thought they were perennial. Maybe next year!!
