Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Wishing everyone a bright and sunny St. Patrick's Day with this stunning painting by Jordan Hicks!  There may even be some clovers hidden in his lovely wildflowers. There are many legends associated with St Patrick. It is said that he used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the concept of the Trinity; which refers to the combination of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Hence its strong association with his day and name. Legend also has that, Saint Patrick had put the curse of God on venomous snakes in Ireland and he drove them all into the sea where they drowned. True, these are mostly legends. But after some 1500 years, these legends have been inseparably combined with the facts. Together they have kept up the spirit behind celebration of the day.
