Mary asked that we post green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to show my neighbors’ house, the neighbors from my childhood that were Irish and had a green and yellow house. But I couldn’t find my old photos in time. The ones I did find had way more orange than they were supposed to! Either I had a lousy camera in my childhood or I had negligible photography skills. Or both.
Instead, enjoy my columbines as they emerge from the ground. I hope to show their pretty blossoms in May.

They look great! Hope you have lots of pretty blossoms.
The plant is a subtle and darker emerald, looking nice on the floor of the forest. Anything green today can be Irish…including the NJ columbine!
Wonderful shades of green on your columbines.
I’d thought you were far ahead of us concerning spring.
We are eating Jaffa oranges now!
I’d considered planting columbines at one point in memory of the students who were killed at Columbine High School, but never could find any around here. My guess is that they don’t do well in our climate.
Which is probably just as well because I have a legendary brown thumb anyway.
I’ll just admire yours if that’s okay!
Great green post – looking forward to the flowers in MAY!
Looking forward to the pretty blossoms.
This is definitely an emerging sign of spring.
A beautiful and healthy looking green!
I love this photo, and the promise of spring that it brings to the eyes.
Oh they look very strong and healthy. I can;t wait to see the blooms.
Oh, Columbine. Such a beautiful slower. Looks so healthy already. Lucky you!
Could the pictures colors’ have changed over time? Looking forward to watching the columbines progress.
Nice green photo. The leaves are beautiful by themselves. Looking forward to the flowers. Thanks for putting up my link.
You’re better off than me – in most of the pictures from my childhood we’re all BLUE!
Columbines are such pretty flowers. I’m so delighted that it’s finally spring!
That inspires Springtime 4 days before. That way St Patrick Day lasts all the season !
Happy Green-Ruby Tuesday, Leaora.
I love the leaf shapes. It seems like they have some reddish at their borders. I’m really curious about the blossoms. Best wishes 🙂
Wow, springing! Surely the flowers would be beautiful too!
they look so sweet in the middle of the winter brush
The best kind of green
I love all the Irish greenery today – come see all mine I am very Irish. thanks for sharing
We all had lousy cameras when we were kids. Would our parents have let us use the GOOD camera? LOL!
