A caterpillar munches on flowers by the bird sanctuary in Blarney, Co. Cork a few weeks ago.
No SF photos today, need to recharge my batteries!

Three Daisies

Daisy Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I’m half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage,
But you’ll look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle built for two!

Clinging Flowers

Flowers cling to the rocks in Church Bay, Co. Cork.

Post processing: curves, channel mixer, blurred layer and layer mask, lomo and unsharp mask.

Purple Flowers

Purple flowers that crept into my garden from next door. I’m not complaining because they’re very pretty!

West Cork Landscape

The beautiful countryside north-east of Dunmanway in West Cork.


Daffodils in Pairc Shalom. Inner City residents on the south side of Cork City have a beautiful park to frequent here.

Cobh Flowers

Assorted flowers decorate the harbour area of Cobh.

Yesterday, my wedding day, was without doubt “the best day of my life”!

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!
