Oxalis and Ivy
When my siblings and I were young, our mother took us on a leprechaun hunt in the forests of the California Redwoods. We spent the time looking in every hollow log and stump for leprechauns. We didn't catch any, although we thought we spotted one or two.
To this day, when I see the oxalis blossoms begin to emerge among the ivy in the month of January I find myself thinking, "We don't have much longer to wait until the leprechaun hunts can begin again".
