Good morning my paddling chums. Hope all is calm in your bit of The Pond. We have had some lovely sunny days of late, amidst the odd splash of rain (and teeny tiny hailstones on Thursday). So much so, that some of my daffs are out. I took a few snaps in the garden yesterday and will pop them on my next post. I still have geraniums that are still in leaf and shooting begonias so I hope they survive for another year.
No more pilates as Mr Duck was north of the border again for a couple of days. Poor soul went to a chippy for his tea Thursday evening and ordered a cheese burger supper, which he (and I too) thought would be a bun (roll/cob/bap. . . delete as appropriate for your area of The Pond) filled with a cheese slice topped beefburger, served with chips. Well, the chips were right but what passed as a cheese burger just outside Glasgow, was a beefburger, topped with a cheese slice, then dipped in batter and deep fried. He was quite crestfallen and concerned that he may have to have the paramedics on standby as he could feel his arteries contracting just looking at it lol!
Perhaps the Scottish Posse can advise if that's normal or did he just happen to stumble across a chippy with a penchant for the experimental?
Must say, before I forget, Happy Anniversary Shirley T. I saw your comment on Sue Wilson's blog yesterday. Hope you and Mr T (not that one!) had a super day.
Also, Sue (Snowqueen62) enjoy your break in Devon.
Now, today's card started as a bit of a challenge to myself. I did a swirly finger thing (technical term) over a colour chart and where my finger landed, would be the colour I had to use. Lucky me eh? Slap bang on green!
Its is just simple layering so the ingredients are. . . . . .

Sorry this pic turned out a bit washed out. Think the camera was struggling with the light a wee bit.
I have decided to give this to our Irish friends for St Patrick's Day (hence the "Begorrah" in the post title) but Happy St David's Day today to anyone of Welsh descent.
Wonder what colour the finger will end up on next time?
