    The shamrock, a national symbol of Ireland, is 3-leafed, not 4.

    We didn’t call it a shamrock. And since the mystery painters have never come forward publicly, we don’t know their intent either. Perhaps they wanted it to be a “four-leaf clover” …

    I just like the fact for the 20 years I’ve lived here this stripe o’ green always shows up. Thanks to those who do it.

    Does anyone know how this originated and why?

    Wallace and Gromit?

    I know who used to do the famous one going up the counterbalance from bottom to top of Queen Anne hill back years ago, every year…  And I’m NOT telling!!! (Heehee!!) That’s part of the fun, it’s a secret! 🍀🍀🍀

      I know, and there are so few secrets any more … at least, good ones.

    I think it’s a designated greenway route

      Ha! That would be synergy.

Sorry, comment time is over.
