In the spirit of St.Paddy's Day, I thought I'd put up some greens. I have some Irish blood in my veins, so I couldnt let the day go unmentioned, now could I? These shots were taken this morning at out local Maple Ridge Park. Lots of thick shaggy moss. Fresh ferns growing in the nurse trees. Still some Old Growth Trees in these parts.
I dropped my sis off for an appointment and her kiddies and I headed down to the park. They played on the see saw and walked along the river. Then we walked across the road to visit the horses at the stables. Jenny fed them grass, but Eddy was scared of them. He said they look nice but they have big teeth and he wasnt taking any chances.

My friend
Vickie has had some frightening news. If you have a moment to drop by with some words of encouragement, I am certain they would be greatly appreciated. Vickie has fought through the day to day struggles of Multiple Sclerosis. Her courage with that battle is admirable. Now she has possibly come up againt another battle. Vickie, you are in my thoughts today as always.

I too am concerned about Vickie & I didn't find a comment place to say anything on her blog. Often the unknown can be more frightening than actually knowing. I suppose that is because we tend to expect the worst case situation while it often doesn't turn out to be so serious. Let's all offer our prayers for positive enlightenment of the "problem."

Hey it's green over here. No it wasn't because of number 5 on Nice photos. Happy St. Patrick's Day and enjoy your weekend.

With spring in the air I am hoping to find more green in my world shortly. :-)

Wishing your friend well.. I am off to say it in person ( or at least in personal print )

Green is my favourite colour, and I'm longing for greenness in my part of the world. So far, it's still dirty snow and sludge, so I'm enjoying your photos very much.

Susan, Thank you seems so small but it comes from my heart. You are such a special person and knowing you are my friend and a part of my life is a blessing. It is my friends and family that is my strength right now. You have no idea what the gesture you made today meant to me. Again thank you.
