Wearin' of the Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day. I went out to search for something nice and green to take a picture of in honor of the day. I know there's something called Irish moss, and we have lots of moss, but I don't know its nationality. I thought of the wood sorrel that grows in the back woods. It could pass for a sort of shamrock, but it is still under the snow and unavailable for a photo op.

The winner is the periwinkle against the stone wall along the driveway. It's a lovely dark green even though March winds are still blowing a bit cold here. Later it will have beautiful dark blue flowers, but today the shiny green leaves are enough. It's a lovely blue sky day. Who could ask for more?
