Marriage Stones

Dís gallán ag seasamh in éineacht leis na cianta cairbreacha, séasúir, daoine, laethanta, sealaid ag sleamhnú thart, an saol ag athrú ina dtimpeall ach tá’id fós ann, taobh le taobh le spás bheag eatarthu ach péire iad mar sin féin, préamhaithe san ithir ó aimsir na díle. Tá a ndiongbháilteacht agus a mbuanseasamhacht ina ábhar iontais san am seo ina mholtar dúinn dúinn aon sean rud a chaitheamh uainn. B’fheidir go bhfuil ceacht le foghaim uathu!

Spring Zing!

Zingy Spring Pesto

I have a bit of a glut of Rocket lately and you know how it is if you don’t pick it Rocket  goes to seed while your back is turned, so I returned home today with heaps of it and then I spotted the Babington’s Leeks were well up a so I made a delicious  (if I say so myself) vegan friendly (inadvertently, no parmesan in the fridge!) pesto.

Grab a few handfuls of Babington’s Leeks, and rocket; remove any long wiry stalks

Finely chop a clove or two of garlic

Fools' Day Splash!

The long stretch in the evenings is so noticeable now and the weather has warmed up enough that the sun sparkle on the sea is more and more alluring, On Fools' Day the temptation became too much, and the kayak was hauled out of winter hibernation, washed down, checked over and made ready for her first splash of the season. And what a day it proved to be the sun was bright and the wind was calm perfect!  So with much trepidation and excitement she was launched off South Harbour Strand. That initial step into the water wasn’t too cold either!

'One Positive Thought Could Change Your Day'-even in January!

So many people feel the January blues but not here,not this year. The weather has been kind with bright skies and warm temperatures not to mention calm seas. Right now January is just great!

The daffodils are marching ahead so fast you can almost see them growing in front of you, and it won’t be too long before the first blooms emerge, the Camellias are also just about to bloom and I think for the very first time the Bear’s Breeches are going to flower, they were grown from tiny seed a few years ago, and never flowered but this might just be their year.

A Visit to Mara Island Heritage Farm

Sometimes we take for granted the most lovely things that are on our own doorstep and we don’t take time to visit them so today I decided to be a tourist and walk the Gleann Loop and then visit Fiona Mac Lachlann’s Mara Island Heritage Farm. I was very much in luck because Fiona was just about to go about feeding the animals.  First we went off to see the pigs Mela and Madhu, with their family of very cute and well fed banbhs (piglets).
