Cleveland Seeing Green

What a glorious day, St. Paddy's was this year, 60's and sunshine, and a real day for celebrating! My hubby's family is intertwined with the history of the parade; his dad was Grand Marshal in 1977, and his oldest brother has been a director over the years, and now director emeritus. Cleveland has a huge Irish population, and because of the large families, tradition is guaranteed! Here are a few pics of my daughter and friend, they got curbside seats thanks to arriving extra early. My hubby and I sold shamrock cookies, to help out a friends' wholesale bakery. I gave deep discounts to large families. The sidewalks were jam packed with green, some outfits bordered on outrageous, but all in all contributed to the joy of being outside

after a very long winter.

Seeing green also applies to the hope that springs eternal, that soon, the sun and rain will cooperate to bring forth a miracle in my yard. Here is the view from Monday, and here are pics of the garden in it's glory, last May and early June.
