Happy St. Patty's Day!



For 'tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray,
And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all.
~Mary Elizabeth Blake

I remember when my cousin Kerry and I sat in the clover filled yard between my family home and our grandma's (his greatgrandma) house and we searched all day for a four leaf clover..I know we looked at every clover...did we find one...in our minds we did! Do you remember that, Kerry? We were very little and I think of you every St. Patrick's day because of that memory!

Gotta love those memories that warm our hearts on special days :)) Hope your St. Patrick's Day was filled with warm laughter!

when i moved into our previous house, little son just plucked one, as if the yard was full of them (which it wasn't, as i never found another one in all the years that followed). i dried it, and 'lost' it. it pops up to this day, occasionally, when i open up the book in which the dry clover resides. i can't for the life of me remember which book it is now, but it does live in our house, somewhere...
talkin' 'bout frustration. and negligence, i guess....

Yes i do remember now that you reminded me of that. So looking in the rear view mirror is the greatest gift of all, thank you Kimmy....Thinking of the times we visited you are the happiest times of all. thanks again for remembering. Your cousin Kerry..

Now, Kerry, We just have to look for some photos that our parents took of us when we were together..or perhaps we were too poor to own a camera...uh..

Love that story, Kers! It is a lucky shamrock your son found, my darling.
