Day 77—Irish Moss . . . Or Not

It is St. Patrick’s Day and since I’m a quarter Irish, I feel I must acknowledge my ancestry (my Great Grandfather came to the US from Ireland in the second half of the 19th century) so when I noticed what I thought was Irish Moss on the brick planter on my patio, I decided to photograph it. On closer inspection, I realized that this is REAL moss, not Irish moss. But hey, it’s green and I liked the shot. Not only is this not a photograph of Irish Moss, the bricks that it’s covering are orange which is a bit of irony on St. Paddy’s Day and a nod to my English grandmother.
