Landscape… Irish Bliss!

It’s a well-known fact that most of Europe’s landscapes have been altered by man over centuries of constant change. Ireland, they say… was mostly woodland but man’s need for housing, heat and cooking fuel, as well as for grazing for livestock and places for planting, resulted in much clearing.

Today, the island is known worldwide for its many shades of green. Hedgerows and pastures… barley fields in spring and summer. Very important… how else would we get the Guinness if the barley won’t grow. It’s also a very pleasant and pretty land when the sun shines… ah well, that’s not too often but maybe it’s even pretty when it’s raining… I mean… without the rain the landscape wouldn’t be half as green… and pretty!

The Irish landscape on a sunny day... rather pleasant!

        Hey, Good lord no way! Sorry for absence, I have had less time for blogging, been attending a new clinic for physio three times a week (really helping!) and also started Spanish lessons for fun, ole!! All good stuff really but leaves far less time to do nice blogging things. 😦 And next week rejoining the working world (gulp) so… But I will do my best to post every few weeks still, and visit lovely sites like yours! “Too good to miss”. 🙂 I still have your bee in flight image as my laptop screen saver!!
