The Map of Bealtaine Cottage and Gardens is now with the printers in Sligo…finally!
The tiny error in the spelling of Ballyfermoyle has been corrected, (not shown on here), and I’m hoping to pick the 200 copies towards the end of next week.
This map has been painstakingly drawn with fine detail and creativity by the artist and cartographer, David Gascoingne.

And thanks once again for the opportunity & for supporting & encouraging me, I am still buzzing today & I have started on the series of Magic Animal Goddess Cards already .. Raven on the way first . ! I will put progress/updates on my David Gascoigne Art page 🙂 It’s a pleasure & honour to know you Mrs, what you’ve achieved at Bealtaine is nothing short of mind-blowing,..you certainly walk the walk well and are a genuine inspiration, Blessed Be, and more of this kind of thing

The summer progresses towards Lughnasadh as soft fruit is harvested and vegetables continue to grow bountifully.
Outside grapes are as advanced as those in the tunnel!
This old Perlagonium is in her prime…again!
With visitors arriving from America next week, there’s a tidy-up under way!
This is the time for late summer and autumn planting, especially with vegetables and flowers.
This is the second year for this white Hydrangea and it appears to be happy in its home.
My way with plants I’m unsure of is to put them into a big pot and place in the area I want it to grow…to see if it likes its home!
Some others, like this Willowherb, will set themselves and never move from that home…this doesn’t spread at all!
Where plants were heavily pruned over winter, all appears healthy and abundant.
At first I counted nine Buddleias in total, but I stand corrected, for I keep finding more and more…self-seeding is taking over!
Spirea, Shasta Daisy and Hypericum…all friends down by the gate!
The entrance to Bealtaine Cottage is a good advertisement for Goddess Permaculture and Permaculture in general!
