It seems like yesterday that everywhere I looked I saw this:
But, oh goodness, St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah is nearly here, and that means Spring beauty and green water. A few pics from my morning constitutional in the historic district:
(Brown to green)
And a few of the green fountains:
More St. Patty to follow!
Here’s my buddy John Naylor singing “He Looked Beyond My Fault” at yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day Service at Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church here in Savannah. (Notice it is sung to the tune of “Danny Boy.”)
Both “He Looked Beyond My Fault” and “Danny Boy” follow the old melody “Londonderry Air,” an ancient Irish tune.
Top of the Friday morning, to you. Here are Five Friday Bringers of Happiness:
1. This cool pic of blooming almond trees in California sent by my new buddy Don Simmons. Don is good friends with Rick and Linda, the couple who moved to Savannah from Wisconsin. One fabulous day they gave me the tour of the “Joy in their own back yard”. Here’s what Don said in his accompanying email: “Since you mentioned almonds in one of your post, as something that brings you joy–I wanted to send you one of the great views that I have here in California’s San Joaquin Valley, where most of the world’s almonds are grown–it’s time for our ‘blossom trail’ and the almonds are certainly giving us a beautiful show–as well as the Sierras!”
2. Finishing up a great Winter Quarter at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). My two classes:
3. Savannah azaleas (near Forsyth Park):
4. The promise of SPRINGTIME:
5. Fresh pineapple.
Have a Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Weekend!
