Happy Saint Patrick Day!


 

Happy Saint Patrick Day! One day in the year that a great deal of people can celebrate their Irish Heritage. You will see shamrocks and people wearing the traditional green at more than one party. What makes the typical American turn Irish for one day?
Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day could be an excuse for a day to celebrate after the winter blahs. It could be the corned beef and cabbage. Maybe just maybe it’s the green beer.
With warmer days not too far away, we will be able to plant the garden. Maybe Mother Nature knows best. Yes, there are signs of tulips popping out in the front yard. Hello Spring !
The road maintenance crews are busy, working on the streets before it’s too late for your automobile. County roads are lined with hubcaps lost by passing motorists while ruts in the road wreak havoc with car suspension. I can’t say for certain how deep the chuckholes are but I have heard that if you look in one of the massive chuckholes on the way to Linton you can see the top of a Jeep Cherokee that has been reported missing.
You have to feel sorry for folks who go to Florida at this time of year. No comparison could be drawn to any climate on earth that compares to Indiana’s first blush of spring. A few days from now those daffodils that defy any remaining cold weather will jump up out of your long silent lawn.
Yes, the promise of spring in Indiana has no equal anywhere.

Hawaiian Minnie Mouse ??

Concrete lawn ornaments are nice and in Greenwood the lawn decorative  ornaments are difficult to miss as you drive down any street. 

There is a home that has pink flamingos in the yard and a home near me with a Dalmatian standing guard.

I wonder if the people who own the concrete bird bath on Main Street know that periodically a cat uses it  for a drinking fountain.   Do  you  suppose  the  birds  mind  sharing  their bath water?

There is a concrete goose on South Street that is wearing Purdue regalia while less than one block away another goose is wearing Indiana University logo fashion. 

My neighbor has a religious figure in her flower bed.  Across the street there is romance in the air  with a little  Dutch  boy and girl. 

While some lawn ornaments are made of concrete and finished with paint, in reality some of these are wood.  I mention the little old ladies in polka dot dresses bent over poesy patches.  Then there are the plywood statues of little boys who opt to help water the garden.

This city is not likely to lose its love of  lawn ornaments. On highway 135 there is an angel and two blocks away a gargoyle scowls.  And who could miss the bright blue gazing ball on a pedestal one street over.

Yes lawn ornaments are nice, but  Minnie  Mouse  decorated  as a  Hawaiian Hula Girl ??  Perhaps some people have way too much time on their hands.
