The day has turned stormy.
Winds are gusting high in the winter sky, but, inside the cottage, four thick stone walls and a wood stove ensures warmth and comfort.
The Blackcurrant Pocheen rests on the pantry shelf, ready for the midwinter celebrations.
Like it’s cousin, Sloe Gin, it needs a good long rest before the party!
My visitors, Patti and Bill, from America, have left…on their way to Clare.
Both came to visit Bealtaine Cottage to see for themselves Permaculture in action here in Ireland.
Patti discovered Bealtaine Cottage through this blog and, like many people who make the journey, wanted to touch base with this much loved cottage and land.
It’s always good to meet kindred spirits!
A quarter of a million visits to Bealtaine Cottage have been made on-line.
I would sincerely like to thank everyone of you.
I love to read your comments and, like Patti, welcome you to Ireland from whichever part of the world you visit from.
It’s always a joy to meet followers of Permaculture!
The storm is enveloping the cottage as I write.
The night is drawing in.
I hope each one of you is safe and well and warm.
Bless you all…Colette X
