Ireland, 40 Shades of Green. Ireland is a mystical place with shamrocks and leprechauns in hidden places. It is also the greenest place on earth, reflecting the Johnny Cash 1959 song about Ireland’s 40 shades of Green. I lived in Connemara for six months in 1971 and treasure my memories of heating my house with peat and watching the local farmers plant their lazy beds of potatoes.
I took this picture traveling around Ireland in 2017.
