Purple Oxalis

Several weeks ago,  I got stranded on the Rileyville Diner's porch during a torrential storm.  Never having been on the porch for more than a few seconds, I hadn't noticed the amazing Oxalis growing by one of the built in benches.  It was breathtaking, more so considering the dark sky just inches away.

It is not quite shamrock shaped nor is it a true shamrock, but it is often used at St. Patrick Day events.  It is also a house plant, and one that grows well in the shade.

The next time I am at the cafe, I'll take a photograph of that particular Oxalis, with yellow blooms, cascading freely on the porch.
