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!
