Happy St. Patrick's Day


I'm sorry I won't be going to Ireland for the University this summer. I was lucky to go the last three years.

Enjoy the green.

And let's not forget the photo essay for the Grand Ledge St. Paddy's Parade: (popup app is under Photo Galleries in www.lansingstatejournal.com home page)
In Colorado Springs, they let us peace activists into the St. Paddy's parade after dragging people away last year:

Ohhh, Thanks for the sheepie photo! I love the sheepies!

Ruth said...

Thank you, Amy! I hope you and Dennis and Nicholas are well!

Ruth said...

Loring, were you one of the ones dragged away last year?? You go! I'm glad they saw the light this year.

Ruth said...

Heather, yes, for you those sheepies.

mmm, so beautiful.
NYC is crazy for st. patty's day! a parade, and lots of happy drunk people wearing funny green hats stumbling down the streets and into the subways. i'm glad i stayed at home last night. :)
i miss you!

Ruth said...

It always looks nuts there, through the TV anyway. Did you hear about the bad construction accident? A lady (and two construction workers I think) who was there for St. Paddy's day was killed by a crane. :|

Don said...

Wow what beautiful photos. Thanks for warming me up!

Ruth said...

Glad you like them, Don.

Ginnie said...

Awwww. I'm late but I DID like the thought of many people around the world celebrating a Green Day, Ruth. I LOVE your green from the real place. You're lucky!

Bob Johnson said...

Such beautigul images, you have such an eye for photography.

Meredith Teagarden said...

Ruth,
Stunning photos of brilliant greens.

Ruth said...

Yep, Ginnie, I had the luck o' the Irish. Do they celebrate this day in AMS?

Ruth said...

Thank you, Bob.

Ruth said...

Thank you, Meredith.

Astrid said...

Ruth, I almost missed these beautiful pictures, you have been around I see, lucky you, to answer your question to Ginnie, no we do not celbrate St.Patrick's Day, the Irish in Amsterdam might though, but it is not a special day to the Dutch.
Have a great weekend.

Rauf said...

oh such lovely pictures or Ireland ruth
i remember some of them, others are new to me
sorry i am late
happy st. Patrick's day

Ruth said...

Astrid, I suppose you might have to be Catholic to know it as a saints day, and it makes sense that you wouldn't celebrate it there. We have such a large Irish immigrant population here.

Ruth said...

Thank you, rauf. And Happy Holi to you.

I wish I could take new photos of Ireland this year with my new camera.
