Today was St. Patrick’s Day and also March Madness has just begun. This makes my mind wander in several different directions.

I do have a bloom opening on my Mister Lincoln rose bush. You may see pictures of it soon. Maybe it will be open by the first day of spring which is coming very quickly.
Do you have Irish ancestry?
