Finding Gold

Well I didn’t find any leprechaun’s, or even the pot at the end of the rainbow…, but I sure enough found a lot of gold, or gold like colors, as I went about my St. Patrick’s Day looking for those darn, elusive, leprechaun’s… And, believe me… I looked everywhere… You must understand, I believe in leprechaun’s because as a small child, my mother, who is full Irish (Sweeny was her maiden name) told me, “leprechaun’s are as real as Santa.” Well everyone knows Santa is real, so of course I believe it…  And yesterday I looked and looked for one…  I looked everywhere… I looked high in the trees.


In every parking lot.


In church before adoration


I just knew I was going to find one in this sweet acacia tree because they smell soooooo good.


I looked at the nearby school just knowing those little leprechaun’s would be playing with small, laughing, children..


I looked in the vines growing along the fence


And what self-respecting leprechaun wouldn’t want to be playing in this lovely field of wild flowers?


Perhaps one is hiding in the leaves of this giant sunflower


or in the spines of these lovely things that look pretty but I don’t know what they are..


I didn’t get too close to this palm tree cause bad things hide in there… like scorpions.. no thanks!!!


No leprechaun’s here either, just more gold…


I sure wasn’t having any “luck of the Irish”, so I had no choice but to give up and go home… Oh well, better luck next year! At least I saw a lot of pretty gold things to brighten my day. 🙂

So, did any of you see any real, live, leprechaun’s? That weren’t a result of too much green beer??? 🙂 🙂 🙂

Stay Tuned!

    Well, maybe not in the flesh, but reading your blog I found one in you, with your beautiful pictures and discriptions and showing us you were having a fine time enjoying yourself on such a Grand and Happy Day for whoever wants to be Irish for the day can imagine what it is like to believe in finding their Pot of Gold.
