St Paddy's Day Leprechaun

As you can see, we have our own private leprechaun here.

This is our red-head, Josh, in front of 'Babies' Hill' this morning.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, everyone.

That's a great display of daffodils, love your leprechaun!

Very good Rachel, the same to you and family. He seems to be enjoying himself among the daffodils.

did you see the new giant orchid on the bbc2 program tonight ?

Dick Dick 17 March 2011 19:45:40

Sorry Fintan, I don't have BBC but I saw Dermot O'Neill on RTE1. He is making great progress as is his garden.

Rachel Rachel 17 March 2011 19:52:22

Thanks, Ruth and Dick.

What BBC programme, Fintan?

Is Babies Hill a variety of daffodil? or is it the hill behind Josh. By the way Josh you dont look a bit like a leprechaun! Dermot O Neill is such an honest down to earth person isnt he with a passion for perfection though. His programme is the highlight of my week's viewing.

Not a variety of daffodil, Scrubber, just a term for the bumpy ground my son is standing on. We had a digger in last year and I wanted to level the area but the boys revolted. So 'Babies' Hill' remains. Josh has red hair so, you know... leprechaun!

Ah, Fintan was talking about Dermot's programme. I don't have RTE so I'll catch that on the website later.

Babies Hill looks lovely covered in daffodils and the leprechaun looks happy that it survived after the revolt.

Is that a pot of Bamboo gold to his right Rachel?

Great photo Rachel

no , there waas a program on bbc2 , part of it was about a new orchid that has been found , it has hugh flowers and they are begining a breeding program to hybridize it with common orchid types .

it was one of these top ten type programs , should be on bbc i-player .

Rachel Rachel 18 March 2011 20:09:52

Thanks, Geraldine, Fran and Una.

That's right, Bill, Leprechaun gold : )

So glad you enjoyed the article, Scrubber. I think we got the good end of the bargain lately.

Sorry I missed that, Fintan.
