Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge “Green”


“How sweetly lies old Ireland, Emerald green beyond the foam, awakening sweet memories, calling the heart back home.”

This challenge proposed a challenge for me having just returned from a one week jaunt in  Ireland, my mother’s homeland and the magical country often referred to as “a thousand shades of green.”  The many photographs I took displayed the countryside in magnificent hues – emerald, jade, moss, olive, mint.  All different, all breathtakingly beautiful.   Which one is your favorite?

I am an ex New Yorker who still misses the vibrancy of the city. I seek out the humor in every day life and relay it through my stories in the hope others will appreciate as well. I love to write about growing up with my fantastically unique Irish mother whose memory inspires me every day. Although she is no longer with us, her antics are an endless staple for my tales. I currently live in Connecticut with my husband, two sons and toy fox terrier Anabel.
