Weekend Musings from a Permaculture Smallholding in the West of Ireland…and the weather is fab!

  • I love cows…they’re such sociable animals, so am glad I don’t eat them! These belong to a neighbour of mine and are very well looked after by Tom Kelly, as you can see. When I walk down the lane, they are inclined to peer over the hedge at me, full of interest. If I had the extra land I would definitely think about keeping a cow…as a pet!I’m continuing to fiddle around with this new format and try to get the blog unscrambled…bear with me! The image below was snapped on the north facing bank of the smallholding earlier. The cherry tree is in full bloom.The Lower Pond surrounded by fast growing willow fedge. 

From the Kitchen window on a good day, the world looks great…mind you the world is great, every day…well at least that’s the feeling that permaculture gives you!I decided to go for a new theme on the blog…hope you like it!

Saturday Morning Mishaps. Permaculture Pics from Ireland.

 

Another beautiful day at Bealtaine…it looks like there is an early summer for sure. Wild herbs are up in the woodland, as are the Bluebells. Primroses are continuing to bloom and seem to be in abundance this year. Nights are quite balmy and there is no sign of any ground frost, as the grass in the early morning is holding the dew.

   There remains a problem with the uploader/browser, so apologies for the stacking effect of the photographs!

Normality Will Resume…
