The Wearing of the Green

Wearing of the Green

I'm wishing everyone celebrating it a happy St. Patrick's Day! The Emerald City, like many major American cities, enjoys getting its Irish on with all kinds of festivities  from church services to cultural performances to stereotypical green beer at bars. There will be serious overcrowding in our several good Irish pubs,  corned beef and cabbage will be on special at many markets, and in years past, some streets have even been painted green. You may know several of our sports teams feature green and blue as their colors, so when the Space Needle flew the green flag of the Seattle Sounders Football Club and proudly lit the lights I made this image and thought I'd use it today as SDP's little tip of the hat to the wearing of the green.

Oops, photo not showing here Kim.

Thanks Steffe. Used the horrible Picasa interface rather than Flickr to upload the shot. I just hate how buggy and inelegant Picasa has become.

Cute! Yes, that's your city color, isn't it? I would not dare set foot in The Dubliner of McGurk's here tonight for fear of being trampled.

Thanks for your interest, Lytha, and I'm glad you like the shot, but must decline republishing elsewhere, even your great blog.

Thanks everyone for your comments today :-).
