St Patrick's Day Mystery


After walking up the very steep and long stairs to Casa Loma on this foggy and misty St Patrick's Day morning, I came across this wonderful gate but couldn't help but wonder how everything could be green behind it when the rest of the city is still grey and leafless. Could it have something to do with the neighbouring castle? And why do rainbows seem to start from this part of the hill? It's a mystery for sure!
No large stones were kissed during the making of this post! I'll be toasting St Pat tonight!

Casa Loma is one of TO's little jewels! If I lived in Toronto I'd shoot there often.

Are you sure you haven't kissed the 'blarney stone' Red haha! Happy St' Patrick's day, have a great time tonight.

Maybe it is green from occasional spilling of Guinness? Enjoy your Smithwicks.

I know. It's been watered with leftover green beer from previous St. Patrick's Day celebrations, so it greens up before March 17 every year now.

I'm sure you had a great time last night. Hope you're feeling well this morning! ;-)

I'm impressed with this photo. I love rock walls and all that green seems almost miraculous. Like St. Pat!

I'll bet everyone called you GreenPat yesterday!
