Shamrock Green

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. 
Martin Luther, German priest and leader of the Reformation (1483-1546)

Summer-like temperatures over the past few days have summoned green to burst forth from what have long been barren branches. The wee park near my little abode shone gloriously in the sunlight with the shamrock green of Spring. The park is dedicated to the Irish immigrants who lived in the area, many of whom worked the rail lines upon which my commuter train now rests.
