Today, I thought about the letters we used to receive from Ireland about a month before "St. Paddy's Day". My great Aunt Dilly (Dad's aunt) would pull up a handful of "shamrocks," dry them out and send them to us as our annual gift of "Genuine Irish Shamrocks." Each year, we would look forward to them. And it was sad when they stopped coming each year. So, I did the next best thing. I went out and took a picture of the shamrocks in my yard. I'm very much looking forward to spring. Happy St. Paddy's Day to everyone!!! Think I'll go out for a Shamrock Shake!
