As I was writing the title of this post, I realized I was creating a pun without even thinking about it. Saturday is, of course, St. Patrick's Day. A big, big, big day in Chicagoland. I've been known to become Irish myself that day in the past. But, that's not what I was insinuating in the title. It was more of the fact, that with the weather we've had here recently(80 degrees plus) over the last few days, it won't be long till the branches of trees sprout green buds/leaves and then at some point during summer all the beautiful "ponds" cover themselves with green algae/slime. Hasn't happened yet, though, and that's why I'm feel fortunate to have caught this pic in time.
