Leprechaun’s Pot of Gold

“Leprechaun’s Pot of Gold”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Being of Irish ancestry, this is one of my favorite holidays. Even though this is not one of the major holidays, I still like to decorate. This year I thought I’d have the proverbial leprechaun’s pot of gold for the front entrance.



I used two black cauldrons from Halloween and planted them last fall with gold pansies and violas. Two little leprechaun’s completed the Irish theme. I put these out the first of March with a St. Patrick’s Day garden flag. This really put me in the mood for this “great day for the Irish.”

    What a cute idea. Nice to reuse something from another holiday, too.

    St Patrick’s Day is big around here, too. Clever idea about using the pansies as the “gold”.

    That is great! Looks like they really are dancing in a pot of gold.
