Belles of Ireland

photo by Steven Meisel

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Green beer! The wearin' of the green: Green socks, green bras, green beads and boas (here in NOLA).

And look at the lovely belles of Ireland. Their big beautiful skirts look just like the flowers called Bells of Ireland.

Green, green, green is all I love!
This is the beginning of an old German children's song!
Of course the song follows the entire palette, but this came to my mind seeing it!
Beautiful pictures. I had no idea these flowers are called Bells of Ireland! Lovely!

One of my most favorite flowers. I grew them for a few years and loved them dearly!
Hope you had a nice St. P. day!
