If you didn't wear green today, I hope no one pinched you! Today, in American, we are certainly celebrating the Irish, wearing green, and loving every minute of it! There are parades in almost every city; we love the Irish! I thought I would take you on a walk through my green things...I mean the color green, not the environmentally green that we all hear so much about.The first photo is of beautiful green moss. Moss is one of my favorite things! So lush, cool and inviting!
My little green ceramic birds are really cute. I plan to put them in an arrangement of pussy willow and white dogwood blooms.
Don't you love clear colored glass in a window. You can have instant "stained" glass by just sitting some colored bottles in a window. Here are some green ones. Next, I have little tomatoes on the vine to show you! Yes, my tomatoes are already growing---this one is a Roma, I think. The plant is loaded with little green tomatoes.
I love this granite ware coffee pot in the most delicious shade of green. Probably out of the 40's this Pistachio color is making a great decorating comeback. All the magazines are featuring this color with pink and white. It has a nice cottage look, perfect for St. Patrick's Day!
The lovely vase shown here is a favorite of mine. It requires no flowers at all to look quite stunning. I like the color, the shape and the double handles.
My little seedlings are really growing. There is Cilantro, Basil, and some Parsley all in this pot. I hope they aren't too crowded to get a little bigger before I transplant them.
Now, think Shabby Chic green, because this chair is certainly that. It belonged to an aunt of mine and then to my mom. It was painted many times and I kind of like the flaking green paint over the white. It sits on my back porch and I actually use it when taking off my garden shoes!
Well, let us (lettuce) be happy on this St. Patrick's day and enjoy a big green salad with our traditional Corned beef.
Keep a look out for the little Leprechaun.. .. he has a few pranks up his sleeve, I'm told. This one is a Wade's figurine from a box of Red Rose tea---lots of people collect little Wade's figurines. Hope you enjoyed my little green blog.
