We are all deeply affected by light and respond in varying ways to it, though mostly it makes us feel happier and more positive about life.

  1. Dear Colette,
    I stumbled across your page on face book a few weeks ago and that led me here. It was a wonderful discovery as myself and my family are doing something very similar. We also live in Roscommon, we are planting and bringing back a piece of land to all its natural glory and we are doing up and extending an old cottage. We moved in about three and a half years ago but it is amazing what you can achieve in such a short time. I thoroughly enjoy your blog and I recently started subscribing to your other blog as well!
    At the moment I’m enjoying reading through old posts and looking at your beautiful pictures. Also looking forward to all your future posts and we would love to come to one of your open days.
    If you wish to have a look at what we are up to please visit
    Kind regards,
