Into each day
put about one teaspoonful
of good spirits
a dash of fun
a pinch of folly a sprinkle of play
and a heaping cupful of good humor.
Add some green beer and have a Happy St Patrick's Day!
some wonderful vintage postcards....
|I love the big American flag!|
|Note his very NY Dutch name!|
|So sweet---violets...and good luck!|
Mid-March! The garden stores are filled with tiny daffodils and pansies!
For some reason, fresh firm, green artichokes appear on St-Patrick's Day, along with new asparagus and the requisite corned beef and cabbage.....
|shamrock green butterfly on Irish linen "blouse"...in my etsy shop|
And Irish soda bread...yum! When I was growing up in the Midwest my town used to dye the river green! Probably that's no longer "done"---but in New York the pubs do sell green beer (eeew!).
I am making shepherd's pie: the day is sunny and warmish but brisk winds are blowing....The guys at the grocery store gave me a green carnation! What do you do for this holiday?
gone to the beach.......
