Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

17 Mar

oo

DARQ:  I’ve danced through a field of clovers until my shoes turned pale green!

CATHERINE: Yeah, right. Those shoes were shamrock green to begin with. And here’s the proof-

DARQ: Not shamrock green, Catherine – clover green. Don’t you know the difference?

CATHERINE: There’s a difference?

DARQ: Here in Ireland – oops, wasn’t supposed to divulge that – don’t let the Men In Black know I said that.

CATHERINE: Mums the word.

DARQ: Anyway, about the shamrock versus clover – botanists are not be entirely in agreement with which plants are shamrocks and which are clovers.

CATHERINE: So who is?

DARQ: The Irish are. You see, Irish legend claims that St. Patrick used a small clover with three leaves called shamrocks to illustrate Christianity’s holy trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.Anyone who slays dragons must be right, right?

CATHERINE: Ah, yes, Christianity and good old St. Patrick. Okay, smarty, what’s with the four-leaf clovers, those shamrocks associated with St. Patrick’s Day?

DARQ: Those four-leaf clovers are a rare genetic mutation of three-leaved clovers. Did you know four-leaf clovers are considered lucky?

CATHERINE: I did. So, what’s with all the three leaf shamrocks you’re dancing about?

DARQ (cheeks turning slightly red): I was trying to find a four-leaf shamrock.

CATHERINE: Doesn’t look to me like there are any except for those embossed on the coins and the caldron.

DARQ: That’s not a caldron!  That’s a pot-of-gold.  And there is one four-leaf shamrock, but it is really hard to see. It blends in with all the green stones and coins.

CATHERINE: In other words, flash from the camera blitzed it out so it can’t be seen?

DARQ: Exactly. Now, I’ve had it up to my knees in shamrocks, so how about we wish everyone who celebrates it –

CATHERINE: I’m way ahead of you –

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

*****Stop back at Easter to see Darq in a new outfit, this one of her native Wysotti design.

*****Note to Sewers:  Darq’s outfit is a wrap-around skirt that took 60″ of gathered iridescent netting to form the “lace.” Her golden cummerbund was once (many decades ago) a shoe buckle pulled from the “Junk Jar.” After all, you never know when something so pretty will be re-purposed. Have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
