Little Daisies Everywhere

Little Daisies Everywhere

They’re not daisies are they? They look like them, but they were for sale in a garden centre and I’m sure they wouldn’t be so bold as to offer the common daisy for sale?

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Beautiful, pretty pink flowers in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork in July 2007. I already posted a photo of these flowers but this one was sitting in my TODO box for so long it had to see the light of day!

The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher, majestic cliffs in County Clare looking out on the Atlantic Ocean. 7UP are part of the campaign to name the cliffs as one of the new 7 natural wonders of the world. You’ve probably seen the crazy adverts!

It was a really miserable day when we got there. Shooting was really difficult but it was great to finally see the cliffs.

Nature invades our spaces

nature invades

Nature starts to reclaim the works of man as soon as he turns his back. It’s inevitable as this photo of the steps up to a house in Sunday’s Well shows.

My own garden is the picture of neat and tidy lawn without a single blade of grass out of place. I wish!
