Well, this is the very first time I've seen any results for a photo I've submitted! It was so exciting. Thanks for the votes!

I must tell you about the photo:

I'm Canadian but I lived in Northern Ireland for many years married to a fellow from there. He's passed away now and the Shillelagh in the photo is his. (It's an ancient Irish weapon) The shovel was made by my father before I was born (probably in the depression days) and represents emptying my ashes from the fireplace each day when we lived over there. And of course, the shamrock plant I bought in memory of my husband. Thus the title, "Loving Memories from the Auld Sod".

This was so much fun!

Don't understand the title. Picture subjects are kind of interesting.
