…A small cottage, nestled into the west of Ireland…a sustainable sanctuary for Mother Earth, with magical gardens powered by permaculture, love and inspiration. Mother Earth can live without us. We cannot live apart from Her. It's time to nurture and care for our only home.
Hide and Seek…Mixed-Up Seasons. Bealtaine Blog
Summer is playing hide and seek…
Cold in June?
Yes! Bloody cold enough for the woolies to be brought out from hibernation under the bed! The west of Ireland is cold and windy and the stove is lit and I have a shawl around my shoulders as I type! Truly!
despite the weather the strawberries continue to give out the lushest of fruit, to be picked at and gorged upon each time I pass through the veranda.
I deliberately don’t buy imported fruit or stuff out of season as it makes summer all the more welcome!
the cold weather, the Valerian makes its joyous display of pink, again, from nothing more than limestone gravel!
Yes…this is the true Geranium! The one you are probably thinking of is actually Perlagonium. Anyway, it is rather beautiful as well as being a perennial!
