May 8, 2013May 8, 2013 Colette O'Neill May Morning in Ireland A May morning at Bealtaine Cottage. Looking through the front door, the sky is grey, but the trees are all greening up! The roses on the veranda are ready to burst into bloom quite soon! Arabica floods the stone walls of the Angel planter and Poppies are still bulbous eggs waiting to open near the Buddleia. Colour is just waiting to spring forth! These are the Tulips this morning at the back of the cottage under one of the Beech trees. The early morning rain sits atop the still closed petals. The drive-way up to the cottage is filling out with greens, reds and whites as the trees take on their new mantles of summer cover. Parsley and peas growing in one of the raised Potager beds at the back of the cottage this morning. You can see the shreddings and seaweed! I recently moved the garden table and chairs to this sheltered little spot near one of the Potager raised beds…near enough to the back door to nip out with my tea! Lots of Honesty, (Lunaria), in bloom this morning under the shelter of the Laurel arch. Crocosmia, Columbine and Geranium are growing up alongside. These little rockery flowers have blossomed in this earth pot for years now. They sit atop an old iron fireplace filled with shamrock and watched over by Buddha.

After reading about your wine making weekend ….I wondered if you have ever considered putting out a pamphlet on the techniques you use? I would love a copy if you do. Love the new layout on your blog.
I have been asked by many people to write about permaculture and many of the crafts I engage in and the response is…time, when I have some time freed up. A booklet sounds such a good idea though, short and to the point! I will consider that idea, thanks Dorothy!
