DANTE: THE WEARING OF THE GREEN

Hooray!  We won "First Place for the Best Use of Green" in the St. Patrick's Day Contest hosted by "Brian's Home".  Just click on his name to go and see all of the winners.


Here is Lacocoon O'Dante wearing the Green in honour of St. Patrick's Day.  There's nothing like a bright orange tabby cat against the green of the grass and patches of clover to brighten your day and make you feel every bit Irish.

Here's a bit of trivia for you from "Wikpedia":

"The diminutive version of the Irish word for "clover" ("seamair") is "seamróg", which was anglicised as "shamrock", representing a close approximation of the original Irish pronunciation."

So, O'Dante's wearing traditional Irish as befits the occasion.

















And Irish, or no, there's nowhere like the green, green grass of home!

Happy St. Paddy's Day Efurryone!
