Happy St. Patty's Day!

Here is a little green in honor of St. Patrick's Day today. I grew impatient waiting for Spring to come so I decided to grow my own little patch of lawn inside.  Spring starts in 4 days... Yipee!

From Wikipedia:

St. Patrick's Blue, not green, was the colour long-associated with St. Patrick. Green, the colour most widely associated with Ireland, with Irish people, and with St. Patrick's Day in modern times, may have gained its prominence through the phrase "the wearing of the green" meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing. At many times in Irish history, to do so was seen as a sign of Irish nationalism or loyalty to the Roman Catholic faith. St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish.

Hard to believe spring is only four days away, this has been the longest winter ever! Love the green grass, especially with the purple background.
