  1. Hi Colette, I love looking at the pictures of your lovely home and have been inspired by you. I would love to come up and visit your house some time in the near future. I expect weekends may be full; I am available during the week if this is better for you. I will be travelling from Cavan and if my son can come too he will come up from Dublin. Thanks and blessings Sandra

    • Hi Sandra!
      How does Thursday morning of next week sound? I will be around and about the gardens from about 10am until 2pm, so if that suits you, let me know.
      Blessings from Bealtaine Cottage
