Yesterday, at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market, the flower vendors were selling these beauties (pictured above), known as the Bells of Ireland. Their green color is lovely and is said to be reminiscent of the green hills of Ireland.
One of our favorite Irish poets and playwright is Oscar Wilde. Here are a few quotes we like:
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing!
You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.
