Happy St. Patrick's Day.  The shamrock decorations are up,
and we put a touch of green colouring in the last of
the good wine we had with dinner.  The dog sported a bow,
and we sang some good old Irish tunes.  But the party
will happen when the family can get together.  It has been
a thing for us since we bought the boys green treats one year --
tradition.  Even though Steven is Dutch, and my Irish relatives
were really French from France.  Still I love the day.
Sally gets a St. Patrick's Day treat
for wearing her green bow, and trying very
hard to sing Danny boy!
Here's a little painting that is almost finished.  I love the clouds
that fly miles and miles wide across Nova Scotia -- like massive
sculptures of the most beautiful kind.

Have a loving-your-family's-traditions day.

Hi Flora,

Thank you so much. You are blessed with living so close to this scene, that if the weather
warms up a bit you can step right into it. How wonderful!

Love you work to the max.
