the trees are blooming

Charles Stewart Parnell (27 June 1846 – 6 October 1891) was an Irish Protestant landowner, nationalist political leader, land reform agitator, and the founder and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party. He is also a distant cousin, a leaf on a twig on a branch of my family tree.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Oh, the summertime is coming
And the trees are blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather

J - thanks! YOU always find the best of everything else!!

Chrisy - I often think of my ancestors, and wonder what they would think of me.
