Shamrock Green from Ireland for Saint Patrick's Day

I wrote last year about the end of winter, the green of spring and in that post I used an image of shamrocks with water droplets.

Just today, Saint Patrick's Day (17th March) I photographed a similar scene of water droplets on leaves and the bright sunlight glints in the fresh raindrops.

Shamrocks are of course a well known symbol of Ireland made famous, the legend goes, by Saint Patrick who used the three leaves on one stem to explain the Christian Holy Trinity to the Irish pagans that he was converting.

Saint Patrick is as you may well know, Ireland's patron saint and the most celebrated saint around the world with festivals, parades and celebrations on every continent.
