Apologies for my absence

Time is a precious thing and sometimes it gets away on us, as happened last year. I have not posted here since last September. I will make more of an effort to do some post again on this site. Otherwise you can visit my other site Murtagh’s Meadow which I have concentrated my efforts on in the latter part of last year.

Today’s photo is inspired by City Sonnets Challenge – January 8 – with the letter B (Beach in this case).

Wild Garlic

Going for a walk around the grounds of Turlough House and the Country Life Museum (County Mayo, Ireland), I saw all these wonderful wild garlic leaves. The flowers are yet to open, but I loved the pattern created by all the lines of leaves.

It’s not this time of year without…….(WPC)

At this time of year we expect some frosty mornings, after all it is winter. But a whole week of frosty mornings is quite unusual for the West of Ireland.

I have been posting some other shots on my other blog site Murtagh’s Meadow. and for more of other things you would expect to find at this time of year check out this week’s photo challenge
