Rijnvelds Early Sensation

Rijnvelds Early Sensation

If you go down to Blarney Castle now you’ll see 30,000 daffodils blooming in the beautiful gardens there. In my last post I joked that the daffodils were confused but it’s a plant that flowers early and tolerates the cold so it’s perfect for this time of year.

Be sure to check out Ferbal O’Callaghan’s beautiful photo of the daffodils too and check out the Friends of Blarney Castle Facebook group where there are more pictures and information.

There’s also the SodShow interview with Paul O’Sullivan and Adam Whitbourn of Blarney Gardens here and here if you want to know more about the gardens there.

Confused Daffodils in Blarney Castle

Daffodils

There are some confused daffodils in Blarney Castle this year, out in January! I hope the rest of January is mild enough for them.

I posted a similar photo on Instagram a few hours ago, just in case you’re getting a strange sense of déjà vu.

Daffodils at the end of our estate line the edge of the road in a beautiful display.

Edit: I’ve just heard the sad news about Danny O’Brien. I never met him but his photography was always amazing. I hope his site can stay online for a long time so people can appreciate his work. My condolences to his family.

Daffodil, snow and water droplets

Daffodil, snow and water droplets

A lonely daffodil bent down by the cold and snow a week ago in Blarney. Taken very close to the Daffodils in the Snow shot I posted that morning.

Love the tiny water droplets on the stem of the flower. It was a toss up between this image and the one I posted previously for that morning but I really like this shot too so it was tough choosing.

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils struggle against the cold and snow in Blarney this morning. Many parts of the country were covered in a white blanket. Snow is still falling. My son loves it of course. We spent 10 minutes in the back garden throwing snow around and I got some great photos!

If you’re in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day this year make sure you upload your photos to the Pix.ie Festival Group. Pix.ie have got together with St. Patrick’s Festival to give bloggers a chance to get into good positions to shoot the Dublin Parade. I’ll be in Cork that day and I’ll be shooting the Parade here.
I wonder if the organisers down here can do something similar?

More coverage on icedcoffee, Red Mum, Darren Greene Photography, McAWilliams Photoblog and I’m sure on more blogs but I haven’t caught up on my blog reading in ages!

The Lough Daffodils

We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.

Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!

Charity Daffodils

Here are the daffodils my wife picked up when she gave a nice crisp €50 note to the Irish Cancer Society collector in Blarney this afternoon.

A few days ago I offered to give the proceeds from the sale of a photo to charity plus €50 of my own money/. Nobody splashed out on a print unfortunately.

Well done to Robert who braved the elements to collect today!
