Irish Green


Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Hope you and yours enjoy the weekend and if you are of Irish descent...or even if you are not...enjoy this special day! I snapped this pic, of a grate with clovers, on a street in Charleston.


This is a print of a page that appeared years ago, in the magazine Irish American. I found the phone number of the publisher and called him. He graciously sent me a copy of the print...at no charge...and I had it framed in a black frame with a wonderful Kelly green linen mat. It hangs in our home and reminds us that ,"bad things happen when good people do nothing".

On a lighter note...here's a wee bit of green...

...beautiful rail fence...

...gators basking in the sun...



...Southern Live Oak...



No post about the Irish is complete without at least one sheep pic.

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

    LOVE your little sheep in the jars. What a clever idea but I don't think it would keep me from eating the candy.
    Happy St. Patty's Day to you!
    Hugs :)
