Cork Flowers Ireland Nature Photos Trees

Spring Blooms

I can never remember the names of flowers and trees and today is no exception. I captured this image almost a month ago after Jacinta spotted this beautiful display of nature.

We are to be married today, it’s all hectic around here but our prayers have been answered and the rain is clearing off. I’m looking forward to saying “I do” later and making Jacinta my beautiful wife!
Slightly later… we got a mention on the radio when Ian Dempsey read out my text. A pity he fluffed up my surname but their text machine must have mangled it somehow! Jacinta reminded me that it’s a cherry blossom in the photo above!

[…] Good luck to big bro Donncha who is getting married to Jacinta today.  Being best man has taken on new responsibilities, as well as minding the rings, giving a short but witty speech, and paying everybody (to laugh) now there is almost an obligatory blog post to write.  The wonders of modern communication eh?   […]

THAT’s what those flowers are!!! Matt and I must have taken a dozen of them on the trip, and we had no clue…Thanks for clearing that up!
Welcome back, and lots of well wishes for you and Jacinta are being projected from Texas at this very moment! Yours, Charleen

[…] Check out Today is my gift to you by fellow Cork man, Fr James McSweeney. He married us 2 years ago and I’ve tried a few times to get him to use WordPress since! Nice job with the […]
