Wearing of the Green

Hello to you this beautiful Sunday; it's definitely feeling like spring and we are expecting thunder storms and rain later-which is definitely a sign of spring or summer.  Several years ago my best friend sent me this hand made runner; she knows that I'm all things Irish and especially in March.   I love this and it is so special because because she made it for me.  She is also Irish and made a matching one.  I bring out my few pieces of Belleek Pottery that we brought back from the factory in Ireland and always post photos from our trip to years ago; I usually share stories from my parents as be prepared to see green here.
I loved Ireland and especially seeing where my grandparents were born and lived.  I think the older I get the more I appreciate my heritage.  There are people that know me and when introducing me often will say "and she's Irish", which always strikes me as funny.  I do have a Gaelic way of pronouncing several words that came from my mother's brogue and hubby often makes fun of me when it slips out.  When I was 19 and visited Vancouver  B.C.  people kept asking where in Massachusetts I was from, when I told them I was born and raised in California(had my birth certificate to prove it)they wouldn't believe me because so many of the Irish immigrants settled originally in Ma. and still have a bit of the brogue.
I hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy the coming of spring!  I simply can't wait-it's been a long, cold winter here.  I do have lots of  gardening to do as well.
