Clear Skies and Flowers

Lots more photos now from the past couple of days. They're a lot more colourful than the last couple of sets I posted. Thankfully I've finally tired of the gimmicky features on my new toy. Anyway, these show what the world looked like when you turned away from yesterday's sea mist.

Thanks, R. A lovely taste of rural Ireland. Just what I wanted. I'll bet the English built that bridge! Well, stood there and watched, anyway.

The town I live in was actually an army garrison until independence and was really very British altogether. They used to play cricket on the shore greens and everything was named after Victoria. But of course, since conditioned nationalism is still very much in practice 'round these parts that's all conveniently forgotten and covered up. I suppose the area does have so much history that people feel they can pick and chose which parts they want remember.

p.s If you go back to my January posts you can see the bridge all frozen and icicley.

'Icicley.' Nice.

Great photos. Which part of Ireland is it? I love it when pictures have a higher resolution than my eyesight allows.

Thank you so much for following my blog and for your lovely comments.
This is a great post - the pictures are beautiful. They looks like they should be in a nature magazine or something :)
Your blog is lovely too. Oh and I was wondering about the blog name too. It's very unusual and I was just wondering what it meant? Thanks x

Thanks for your kind comments people. I’m quite paranoid about posting my own photos ‘cause I’m rather clueless when it comes to photography. If I get a nice picture it’s generally a fluke.

Declan- the place always looks better when the sun comes out, despite how rarely that happens.

Ruiari- We’re way up here in Inishowen. You’re a Dub as far as I remember, right?

Megan- Thanks for stopping by! I love your blog (although I am especially jealous that you were having a midlife crisis at 16. I want to be 16 again!). Oh, and the title relates to an ancient race of people who used to live in this part of the world called the Tuatha De Dannan. According to folklore they are the ancestors of Irish fairies! If you want to know more click on the ‘about the title’ button in the sidebar which will take you to my first ever post which is all about them.

Beautiful pictures. Just a few more reasons to fall in love with Ireland. Lucky girl to be surrounded by such beauty on a daily basis. <3
