Happy St Patricks Day ♥

Definitely not a coincidence that this day to celebrate Ireland - the land of a thousand shades of green, should fall at the very beginning of Spring. The world seems in unison with all the celebrations as slowly emerging from the drab straw shades of the grass and leaves, are beautiful flushes of emerald green. It really is the most invigorating colour - full of energy and hope.

In honour of some favourite friends and the day to celebrate all things Irish, a collection of a thousand shades of green and a beautiful Irish blessing.

Sharalee, I missed this! yesterday. Happy belated Green day! What a sunny and lovely collection of green. I am not even that fond of green, but this is nice, girlie! Even had to scroll back to that second image w. the roman shades in green linen. Nice!
