Happy St. Pat's Day

I took some pictures last Sunday during the St.Patrick's Day parade around the square in Madison, Wisconsin.When my teenaged son saw this -- he immediately wanted one for himself.

 Of course -- I had to take a picture of this pug.
 The kids really liked this guy.

This little boy was standing in front of us for most of the parade and I loved his hat.
 This is "Sadie" -- she is an Irish water spaniel.  

These little girls are part of one of the local Irish dancing groups.

Then today I saw this in my backyard.   Look in the lower right corner of the photo.
And then it flew over to the fake fruit tree.

And best of all was the reading on the thermometer.  Whoo hoo!!

Funny how at about this time of year.... just about anything is a harbinger of Spring! and then it snows again.

I keep looking for fall... there are oaks and maples here, but so far not seeing any turning.... but it's coming. I can tell the days are getting shorter... sun goes down earlier.
