The storm rages on, as the weather is divided between weird and wonderful.
Sun, torrential rain, gale-force winds continue to ravage the North West of Ireland.
Despite the weather, the progress of Spring is unstoppable.
Sorrel is up in green clumps all over the gardens.
This is a tasty and nutritions herb and salad ingredient and also great for the famous French Sorrel soup!
Buds continue to thicken on the apple trees and there’s some early blossom about to open on the Redcurrants
The hens have settled in well and are laying eggs…that was much faster than I expected, so they must be happy!
Catkins and leaves are out on the Willow and buds are swelling on the Horse Chestnut trees.
Blossom is beginning to open on some of the Pear trees, despite the crazy weather and the temperatures remain quite high, even at night.
Bealtaine Cottage is also on YouTube…with over 85 videos about Permaculture, planting, growing and living.
Over 500 blogs from Bealtaine Cottage in the archives here.

Hi Colette, I can’t find your address anywhere on your WordPress page! Am I being stupid or am I looking in the wrong place? i know you’re in Sligo but I need to know where exactly before I come to your permaculture workshop in July. Cheers, Jane
I’ve sent you an email!
Thanks so much for your hospitality. We so enjoyed seeing the gardens and we’re inspired for when we get back home.
Safe journey to you both!
