If you’ve read my blog awhile you know my love of the Irish and all things from and associated with Ireland. Even though I’m not Irish by lineage, I am in my heart, so St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in the Pitner household. I bought this bouquet of “Bells of Ireland” the other day and just love, love, love the way they look. I don’t remember seeing them blooming wild in Ireland, but I choose to believe that they do. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
May your blessing outnumber
The shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go
Music is such a part of the Irish – here’s a sampling of what you’d see walking in the streets of Dublin:

Lastly, I’ll leave you with a little Irish Wisdom, you never know when it will come in handy:
~ A man who holds good cards would never say if they were dealt wrong.
~ A little of anything isn’t worth a pin; but a wee bit of sense is worth a lot.
~ A nod is as good as a wink to a blind donkey.
~ Castles were built a stone at a time.
~ Don’t rest your eyes beyond what is your own.
~ If you don’t know the way, walk slowly.
~ Making the beginning is one third of the work.
and my personal favorite:
~ Never buy bread from a butcher.
