All Things Green for St. Patrick’s Day


Today I’m sharing all things green, my favorite photos for St. Patrick’s Day!

Being married to an Irish man for 21 years, it’s a good thing I love green.

Green has always been my favorite color. My kitchen is green, I love to wear green, the color itself just makes me happy!

This was a fun little project that I put together for my blog for St. Patrick’s Day. I have over 20,000 photos in iPhoto on my computer (yes, it’s backed up regularly). I quickly ran my mouse over the months and pulled out my favorite green pictures to share today.

Ha! I realized how much I love spring and summer. Here’s a few things “green” that I love.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, friends!

Garden beds at dusk.

A luscious avocado.

Green napkins and plates.

Dessert served on a green heirloom plate.

My lemon tree.

Scent of chives.

Elegant green apple centerpiece.

Wearing my favorite Hip Hostess apron.

Our strawberry bed.

The swaying of bambu on the side patio.

My beautiful daughter.

A green lawn.

Lettuce from our garden.

A green tablecloth. (Accessories from Terra Firma Home.)

Daisies in the front yard.

A simple green vase.

The scent of basil.

Our pool at dusk.

Grass at the beach.

Apples ready for applesauce.

Friends who came for dinner.

Homegrown green beans.

Scrabble in the pool.

Can you tell I’m gearing up in my mind for spring and summer? It’s hard to find “pretty green” in the dreary winter months. Only a few days ago, this popped up in our front yard. I couldn’t believe it. Only ONE.

I looked around in our neighbors yards – nothing.

So I’ve been enjoying our one and only daffodil this week, and anxiously awaiting the other blooms.

We’re be on our way to Carnegie Hall, where my daughter and her violin group will be performing this next week at the Music Festival. It’s a very exciting week for us!

I’m sure NYC will be buzzing on St. Patty’s Day … don’t you think?

What are your St. Patrick’s Day plans this year?
