This is Ireland. This is a place where more conversations begin with a topic related to the latest storm hitting the country or end with something along the lines of… OK… see you the weekend, depending on the weather. Yes… … Continue reading
Happy Monday… I hope you’re feeling on the up and up! We’ve entered the last stretch of April A to Z. In some ways I regret taking up the challenge as I’ve found myself being drawn deeper and deeper into … Continue reading
I think I’ve used the Harry Chapin song as inspiration before. All my life’s a circle… sunrise to sundown… Well, why not again? It’s a rather potent song… a reminder of just how lucky we are to witness a sunrise … Continue reading
Ireland is the land of GREEN! Forty shades? Emerald… grass-green, lime… mint… shamrock. Man, there are so many shades I could most probably do an A to Z just on green… but I won’t. Yes, I’m chicken! Green chicken? Strange … Continue reading

I’ll tell what… Ailsa really got me going with this challenge. I was doing a bit of outdoor investigation when a thought struck after I spotted this fantastic work in progress. Find parking nearby to get closer for a few photos. … Continue reading
If only, we could live with childlike acceptance of one another, this planet will be some place! I thought of this photo the minute I read this week’s challenge. As an ugly, hairy specimen of the male segment of humankind … Continue reading
I’ve only recently discovered these gardens. There is definitely an air of tranquillity about the whole site. The circular lines are offset well by the parallels created by the horizontals of stairs and interlinking trellis timbers. The memorial gardens were … Continue reading
Me, for one… likes warmth! I can do with an all round 24 deg C… yes, that is my optimum. Well, the occasional 28 will also do… especially if there’s a cooling sea breeze going. However, I’ve taken many great … Continue reading
Firstly, I have a confession to make. This is a photo taken by my good lady… with a mobile! (Those who know me will testify to the fact that I can’t really reconcile myself with the fact that phones take … Continue reading
I spotted these blossoms yesterday while we had a bit of blue sky. I think the time for spring renewal is here but like last year we stand a chance of the later frosts damaging the early blooms and blossoms. … Continue reading
