An Irish Blessing
(A Blessing from St. Patrick)

May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

(Traditional Irish Blessing; origin unknown, although some attribute it to St. Patrick.)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
What a wonderful way to celebrate.

And great idea keeping the seed out by the feeders. We'd probably keep up with ours if that was the case.

Happy (belated) St. Patty's day to you, too! Looks like your bulbs will be flowering very soon!

Look at those bulbs!

The only bulbs that high around here come in a pot from the grocery store!

You're off to a splendid start. I'm so happy for you!

Happy belated St Patrick's Day!
