Happy St. Patrick's Day.  I sold this little painting last year.  This is what
shamrock flowers look like -- delicate wee things, not the hearty,
shiny green we will decorate with March 17 for a small, but festive St. Patrick's
Day family lunch.   My mother thought that the Poindexters, our "Irish"
relatives were Huguenots, who fled France for Ireland, and then fled Ireland 
for Canada settling near what is now Perth, Ontario. By that time they were 

They lived in harrowing times fleeing persecution and famine.  Our
family made up of Scottish, English, Irish, French and Italian on my side,
and Dutch and Indonesian on Steven's side started celebrating this
day when the children were little.  And because children have
fabulous memories you can't have a special celebration once, so
it became a thing we do every year. And will again this year! Have
a good one.

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day.
