The Wearin' of th Green
Everything is turning green right intime for St Patrick's Day. We moved into our new house in the winter and all the trees were brown or bare. This month the oak tree
in our back yard has burst into beautiful green leaves. Of course there is a good share of pollen too but it is all worth it.
In the park where we often go to walk the grounds are green and there are some little trees that are bursting with white jasmine like blossoms. I saw these flowers at a nursery. I have never seen anything like these.
What brilliant magenta and purple in each blossom. Fantastic.
I love spring.

And the Top o' th ' Mornin to
Is everyone going green on Thursday? Green beer, green lights and green t-shirts so you don't get pinched. Being a horse lover ever since my childhood, my favorite Irish spirit is the Pooka. "Puca" means ghost or spirit in the old Irish language. It is a shape changer and can take on many animal and even human like shapes. Pooka is most commonly pictured as a wild back horse who rampages the countryside trampling crops and causing other mischief. I have two interpretations of Pooka.
This is a digital manipulation made from a photo that I took of an old carousel house way, way back when I was in college.
