Morning photo: Goin’ green!

SUMMIT COUNTY — A few green-themed photos in honor of St. Patrick’s Day in today’s photo post — and please don’t call it St. Patty’s Day. Patty is a girl’s name, and has absolutely nothing to do with St. Patrick. If anything, St. Paddy’s day might be borderline acceptable. In any case, green is quite the color, perhaps not as eye-catching as red, or royal as purple, or soothing as blue, but it certainly stands as a color of worth, especially in scenes of nature.
