A day to recognize and salute green. I’ll get you started (actually it’s tomorrow, I just checked the calendar)

‘The Color of the Grave is Green’ – Emily Dickinson

Then, there’s the orange conundrum. But, I just found out….

“Traditionally, the green represents the Catholics of Ireland, the orange represents the Protestant population and the white in the middle symbolizes the peace between the two religions.”

A bit of much needed peace for today. Enjoy!
