The So Many Photos Say Cheese! Post St. Paddy's Day Pre Spring Link Up

Yesterday was the St. Paddy's Day Parade and tomorrow is the last full day of winter. Let us all put cheese to cracker and sing (but not with our mouths full).

Guess who did and who did not get parade candy

Life is a Cabaret ol' chum

At last, everyone is looking the same way—no, looking to the left, looking to the right, on your phone. Nanci

I have way too many St. Paddy's Day photos to post and haven't even gone through half of them. One way or another I'm starting this spring with plenty o' green (no, not that kind of green or that kind either). I'll be sneaking in photos from yesterday for the next few weeks.

Is it me or is that pillar crooked and that leprechaun pure evil?

But for now, Let's Say Cheese! Sorry kids, no candy for you.

    1. Hey Lydia, if you read this, remember your link won't work soon and it's pretty hard to find you from it now.

  8. In the spirit of St Paddy's day - a staghorn:) Great to see these smiley images in green.
    Here, I could hardly tell it was a special day - it seems it's celebrated more in the North of the USA?
    Thanks for hosting, Blog Friend:)

    1. I had to look "staghorn up and it is a very cool looking plant. There were a LOT of smiley faces because they thought we were going to throw them candy but they got on us for it so we give all the candy to everybody that walks (I rode again this year) and keep some of the back up candy with us (big mistake). It's bigger in Chicago and probably Milwaukee but we Irish are everywhere, doncha know. We've got a pretty good Celtic Culture group here as well and I think the best fest of all the many festivals is Irish Fest in Milwaukee.

  15. Very nice shots! Wow! The children are so sweet! <3
    In Europe this day is not so popular ... at least not in the Netherlands.
    Have a very nice week, Jeanna!

    1. It probably varies from town to town, there seem to be more Irish here than I'd guess though. Maybe railroad work brought them here like some of my relatives.

    1. I think it's either from or in hopes of parade candy.

  18. The 'candy' shot is so typical! Sadly, 'they' have declared that throwing candy during a parade is not safe here in New Zealand. I am sad for those little ones who will never know the joy of catching a piece of candy from those in the paraden :( Oh, well.... thanks for linking up over at My Corner of the World!

    1. We can't throw candy from the car so most of these photos are kids thinking if they smile and wave they'll get candy, pretty Pavlovian. No more candy even from the "walkers?" Is that because of the shooting?
