St. Patrick’s day should be a gardener’s favorite holiday. What’s not to love about a day of feasting, indulging and celebrating all things green?

St. Patrick used the shamrock in the 5th century to illustrate the doctrine of the Holy Trinity as he introduced Christianity to Ireland. Happy St. Patrick's Day and God bless!
