Violets and Wild Strawberries…Early Summer in Ireland…Bealtaine Permaculture Smallholding

This morning at Bealtaine…blue skies, sunshine and just about the best weather this year…

Walking Jack is such a pleasant task on such a morning!

Willow arches are coming alive in the Bog garden. The greening of the Willow is always a sign of early summer and today is warm and sunny!

Water levels in the ground are dropping, but the Spring Well continues to feed the ponds in the Lower Gardens. Blackcurrant was planted in raised areas in this area and are doing well, with lots of blossom promising good fruit later on.

Green Beech continues to hold onto the last of the leaves from last year. Buds are thickening and will open in the next few days.
