But apparently, too, the good saint would have preferred shamrocks - to judge from the gusts of wind that knocked out our power for the night. Not to mention the two inches of snow that greeted us when we stumbled out of our sleeping bags in the living room the next morning. I wonder when our second day of gardening is likely to be.
