St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! It is the perfect day to spend time with family celebrating the Luck of the Irish. From events here in Tallahassee to at-home traditions, there has never been a better time to wear green, plant some shamrocks or go searching for a rainbow.


Plant Shamrocks

Plant some clovers, (with the luck of the Irish you might find a four-leaf one) in your backyard or as a houseplant. These little green plants are a great way to get outside with your kids and introduce them to the hobby of gardening.
