T(ea) Stands For Tuesday on Monday St. Patrick's Day Edition

I wanted to put up a short St. Patrick's Day post, and since I know Elizabeth usually posts her T(ea) Tuesday  link late on Monday, I hope she won't mind that I am posting a little early to also share with Bleubeard and Elizabeth and the rest of the T(ea) Stands for Tuesday gang!

My daughter has Spring Break (Grad School) this week so most of my time will be spent catching up with her, but I thought I would present a few facts about St. Patrick that you might not already know.

Did you know....

March 17 is actually the day St. Patrick died?

St. Patrick was not Irish...but rather was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales?

At the age of 16, Patrick was kidnapped, brought to Ireland and sold as a slave?

Blue was the original color associated with St. Patrick, not green?

Now it's time to show my drink, along with a new French Beaded flower arrangement that was inspired by the New Zealand Rock Lily or Renga Lily.
Of course it is food coloring in my water! Happy T Day everyone! Thanks for stopping by today!

Love your beaded flower, and the green drink looks most intriguing! Nice to learn more about Patrick, too. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Ah, your drink goes well with those lovely lilies. And of course, I learned a LOT about Patrick. That's what's so fun about T. I learn something new with each person I visit. And this one is superb. Thanks for joining on Monday for T(ea) tomorrow.

And there was me thinking it was creme de menthe you were drinking! Haa Haa!
Those lilies are stunning. Even Hubby was impressed when I just showed him! I would like some but I know you don't ship to UK. Also I would be afraid of what state they would be by the time they got here.
Have a good week and Happy T Day!
Hugs

Hi Debbie, thanks for the great St. Patty's day factorial! It's always great to learn something you didn't know. Personally I still think we should wear blue. Green is SO not my color!! "Green, it's the color of gangrene." Hugs.
