…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.
The floor is concrete, so to keep it cheerful, I paint it every year or two.

However, over the course of the winter, the stove began to billow smoke, getting worse as the time progressed.
This inevitably caused the walls to discolour…well, that and leaving a pot of vegetables boiling frenetically on the stove one day, which in turn caused an inordinate amount of steam to condense on the walls and run down in cascades of grey dire…so, you have the overall picture!
The past two days have been spent in overalls, painting…
