Sitting in the park with my husband and the pup, everywhere I looked, was green.
Of course, it is late summer, the trees are heavy with green foliage, the grass is healthy and thick and then there are the green parrots, all very busy building nests.
They fly by constantly, carrying lengths of twigs and branches 3 and 4 times longer than their bodies.
Squawking at each other constantly.
I can never tell if they are having a great time, having an argument or having a breakdown.
All the other birds are quiet and birdlike.
And to add to the greenness, I realized today is St Patricks Day.
