Happy St. Patrick's day


L - Nikon / T - Nikon

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic. ~Adrienne Cook

Did you wear your green today? I'm not Irish but I always wear green on this day. I have a nice spring green raincoat and it just happened to be raining today so I was covered - in more ways than one. Remember the days of young when you might get pinched at school if you didn't wear green?
I see Taylor wore green too. I told her about bench mondays and she sent me this today. She's a little early with it but that's ok because just look. I am smiling again - just saying... greens, yellow, hands, feet, up, down... love.
Hope your day was cheery and bright.

If only it were a four leaf clover and not a daffodil.
If you hold a four-leaf shamrock in your left hand at dawn on St. Patrick's Day you get what you want very much but haven't wished for. ~Patricia Lynch

what exactly is bench monday, L.?

i've seen it everywhere. do you know how and why it started? is there something more to it than the obvious... posting pictures standing on a bench of sorts on mondays?

am i missing something? just curious.

This is the first year (in all my years!) that I've heard of being pinched if you don't wear green. I dashed back to the house and grabbed a necklace that has green stones, I was dressed completely in black. My husband who was waiting to leave asked me why I couldn't just say I was Black Irish ...

ah, but I couldn't, Kathleen

Love those spiffy boots! Love them! I love the coat, too. I'd like to see the whole thing sometime.
