green, green, it's green they say ...

Irish or not, do you participate in "the wearin' of the green" on St. Patrick's Day?


An Irish Blessing

May you live a long life
Full of gladness and health,
With a pocket full of gold
As the least of your wealth.
May the dreams you hold dearest,
Be those which come true,
The kindness you spread,
Keep returning to you.

  5. We are all Irish on ST. Patty's. Reason? We have quite a stew in this country; celebrating our roots does everyone good!

  6. That's a lovely blessing, isn't it?

    Apple green is my favorite color. Green is the color of spring and new things.

    Top of the mornin' to you. :-)

    Cheers,

  7. Green is not my color to wear, but yes I try to have something of green on my person...it's a necessity with 9 grandchildren. Enjoyed the poem...hope everything in it holds true for you, Bonnie!

  9. I did when I was a kid but as an adult I am usually totally unaware of when the day is.

  10. WOW that green leaf is like a head light! Gorgeous color! And If I could wear that leaf- yes, I would wear green- I only have olive in my closet-unless grass stains count.

  11. I'll be a little green around the gills while I have my mammogram! Urk. Other than that I have no green clothes except a khaki-ish t-shirt.

    LOVE the photo!
