Happy Saint Patrick's Day

"Land of Heart's Desire, Where beauty has no ebb, decay, no flood,
But joy is wisdom, time an endless song."


Ireland is faerie mist and pubs,

Carefully penned words and laughter,


Abundant salmon: have some on me.
Salmon with lemon-cream chive sauce


And dreams. Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Your pics are great! Chicago had a wonderful St. Pat's Day parade also but, unfortunately it was canceled due to the humongous crowd and rowdiness. Hope you had a great St. Pat's Day!
