Early Spring around Bealtaine Cottage…

Spring is making an early entrance into the west of Ireland. 

Euphorbia is developing it’s flowers…we could see an early display of flowers. 

Over recent days I have spread 3 tons of local gravel. When I bought this old cottage almost 8 years ago, there was a need for a road into the land. Bealtaine sits back on the hill about 150 metres back.

Gravel is an excellent medium for a lot of plants to grow through, like the Valerian emerging here along the back of the Eco-Lodge. Rubus edges the path in a natural fashion and determines the size of the path, thus saving gravel spread.
