ST. PATTIES DAY - green inspiration pictorial

St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17
 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick,
the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he
 died on March 17 in the year 461 AD. 

In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day,
people traditionally wear a small bunch of
 shamrocks on their jackets or caps. Children wear
 orange, white and green badges, and women and
 girls wear green ribbons in their hair.


A leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish folklore,
 usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red
 or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief.

 The Leprechauns spend all their time busily making
 shoes, and store away all their coins in a hidden pot
 of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured
 by a human, the Leprechaun has the magical power
 to grant three wishes in exchange for their release.

In the color spectrum of the rainbow,
green is a second-order color formed from the
mixing of yellow and blue.



 
In feng shui green means balance
which inturn brings harmony.

 It is versatile and it isn't gender specific
 until we choose it to be. 


 We can find green just about
 anywhere we look, 

Green apples


Green glass
Green limes

Green beds

 Green curtains
