The Meadow


Our Sherkin Island garden has once again turned into a wild flower meadow. Much to our delight, we discovered two wild orchids – a gift from nature. Isn’t it lovely when a plant appears from out of the blue? (Or green).

Today is a wet and windy bank holiday Monday in Ireland. With a gale force 7 warning in place, we had little choice but to pack up our things and head for the mainland yesterday. And what a beautiful, blustery, sunny day it was, with sea horses frosting the blue green sea and the island’s flora adding vivid splashes of colour.  There’s lot to show and tell but I will leave you for now with this picture of Trá Bán.
