What does “Top of the Morning” mean? When you wish someone the “Top of the Morning” you are wishing them the best part of the morning. To which they should reply, “and the balance of the day to you!” This is wishing you a good rest of the day. This saying actually comes from New Zealand because they wish you at the top part of the morning. Ref:

This saying is frequently used around St. Patrick’s Day in the USA by those individuals mistakenly thinking that it comes from a saying in Ireland. ( I was personally surprised by this information, and thought I should pass it on to my friends here in the USA.)Regardless, I will continue to say, “Top of the Morning!” to everyone I meet on St. Patrick’s Day. The green shamrocks on my favorite coffee mug inspire wonderful daydreams of beautiful Ireland at this time of year. :) Canon Powershot S51S

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)
