June 5, 2013June 5, 2013 Colette O'Neill The Magical Garden The morning is hot and sultry. The sky is clear blue. Ireland basks in heat. Roses on the veranda are making a spectacular show and the delicate scent fills the morning air As we ascend towards Midsummer plants have suddenly taken off and appear to have grown overnight. Poppies have opened all over the gardens, even in the tunnel. These self seed and come up more intensely year on year. Herbs are filling the beds as bees buzz busily overhead. The grass within and around the stone circle has turned to meadow. Cow Parsley vies with Ferns for space around the Stone Circle. Bluebells are just visible in the lushness of a June morning in the west of Ireland. There’s a sense of magic in the air around the ancient stones!

So I’ve been speaking to an Irish friend who’s very keen to come to your course on the 20th. Have you any spaces left?

Yes, that should be fine.
Post me the name and I’ll include for the day!
Everything is looking so lush and beautiful! I especially love the self seeded poppies.
Rain has fallen for three days now, an iris that had not bloomed in three years is full of large yellow flower and dips her head to the ground with the heavyness. Beauty is so up lifting.
Absolutely magical!!! The pink blooms are gorgeous!! Your garden really is special.
After being very dissapointed at being unable to garden this year I have recieved some lovely pots filled with beautiful courgette and tomato plants and am told I will be getting some herbs and strawberries (also in pots) tomorrow 🙂 I was also given a half-size watering can by my kind son. This has made me very happy 🙂
