Photographer's Note

On this St.Patrick's Day, tis a day for all things green as everyone around the world proclaims to have a little green blood in their family lineage...even if it isn't true:-)
In Canada there was a heavy migration of Irish after the famous potato famine (also known as the Great Hunger in the mid-1800's), many of them arriving with only their shirts on their backs....others arrived only to die in quarantine camps because of disease (Typhus and Cholera) contracted during the long over-seas trip in crowded ships.
In Quebec,where most famine ships arrived, many orphaned Irish children were adopted by French-Canadian families and allowed to keep their Irish family name.These Irish children integrated into the Quebec society and their names have gone on to be quite famous ....names like Johnson, O'Neil and even TE's Daniel O'Brady :-)
Montreal has the second largest St.Pat's Day Parade after New York and tradition dictates that only green beer may be served today.
This photo is from a patch of clover taken last fall after an overnight frost had nipped the leaves...but they kept their green colour:-)
