Looking For Green . . . .

in all the right places . . .
stems of green
roddie buds
dripping wet 
fog filled spruce
pockets of snow
red twig against green
first blush of green leaf
pushing through snow and ice
natural light green
peach and brown color
of saved blown eggs
from many years ago
green chapel door
near bantry of ireland
surrounded with
green holly
green leaf fronds
they are each 
 part of the
irish garden house
world that i enjoy sharing
with each of you
the fuzzy photo was taken at a movie event
a few weeks ago
and i copied it from
our irish american society newsletter
i love my green
although this is not one of my
famous irish sweaters

this weekend
my friend
babs and i
will be joining others
at a
meet up
naperville, illinois
who i met through babs
last year
will also be joining us

i will be bringing a bit of my
shamrock life
irish luck

i am looking forward
to some fresh ideas

and if you come back to visit me
i will tell you
once again
my story of
the little lost
irish boy
thank you
to each of my
new followers
and each of you
who have been with me
for many days, weeks, months

Lovely post, Lynne! The blogger meet sounds like fun! You found lots of pretty green. The little boy is cute, what his story? I am going to Ireland, maybe next year. Maybe I will see a green door too. Have a happy day! Top of the morning to you!

I'm looking forward to some corned beef and cabbage Sunday. And because we are so German I will make kuchen for dessert.

That would be a really fun event to attend Lynne. I hope you have an awesome time meeting other bloggers! I love green but the only green here is the softwood trees. ;)

Good Morning Lynne
and Greetings from Ireland

I just wanted to pop by and wish you
a very Happy St. Patrick's Day.

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

Lynne, it was so lovely to meet you! Thank you so much for the adorable shamrock. I have it hanging from the key that sticks out of my small vintage china cabinet. My husband is half Irish, so this little shamrock is perfect. Although, I've heard that everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day! I'm looking forward to exploring more of your blog. I just became your newest follower.
