Greenery amongst the break-water boulders - Green Leopard Frog

Irish Limerick:

The husband recently retired
He is thankful he didn’t get fired
Since becoming quite lazy
He’s driving wife crazy
She’s praying he’ll soon be re-hired

So, I sign off on this morning with a St. Patrick's Day sentiment....

  6. "Authentic Irish food is known for being simple and hearty, and that includes many of the desserts. Pies, cakes and puddings have long been part of Irish cuisine, with fresh fruits and Irish whiskey being some of the more famous dessert ingredients." Source: The Celtic Times 2014. I wonder what I will bake tomorrow!!!!! It will be mean and green for sure!

  11. Hello Annie!:) I loved your green post to celebrate St Patricks day. Most of all I enjoyed reading about Mother Teresa. If there was ever a Saint she was one. I didn't know about her Irish connections, or her miracles, only that she was a saint, long before she was recognized as being one.
    Happy St Patricks Day!:)

  12. Hello, the Green Heron is one of my favorites. Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

  13. a lovely fence-sitter he is!

  14. Annie, I neglected to say that I like your Heron on the fence shot, and how could i have overlooked the Heron on the reeds image, it's beautiful!:)

  15. Happy St Patrick's Day to you also and this is a wonderful fun post.

  16. What a fun St. Patrick's Day post. Lots of great green. My favorites, The Green Heron on the Fence and that cool looking frog.

  17. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  18. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Anni! I like your little people. And that leopard frog.
