Happy St Paddy's day

It was a chilly Sunday yesterday here in Montreal, but the sun was out, the sky was blue so I wrapped up and went downtown to capture a few images of the yearly St Patrick day parade. 

Lots of smiles and fun on St Catherine, a time when many people feel Irish for a day. I baked a traditional Irish Soda Bread and found an image of lucky clover that I shot last year.

Perhaps St Patrick could see his way clear to have a little tipple with mother nature and ask her nicely once she is a little tipsy if she wouldn't mind getting spring rolling here in Canada. There is still a meter of snow in my garden and I am chomping at the bit to see the grass and getting out in the garden for my food shots.
