The river in bloom

Liscannor, a coastal village on the west coast of Ireland, famous for its stone
The rocks are a natural wonder, full of marine life
And wonderful beauty and colour in small and large rock pools
From deep purples, pale pinks, emerald and olive greens, yellows, browns
reds, black, white
All thats missing, is a mermaid.

|This little Spideog is singing its heart out in my garden morning, noon and night and getting more friendly with each day, it is difficult to say if it is a male or female, as both look identical. Spideog is Irish for Robin.|

|On Saturday morning at the market, I spotted some nice bouquets of dried lavender for sale. |
The bouquets brough to mind some photos that I had taken last summer
|Busy bumble bees happily buzzing around pollinating the lavender|
|The Tortoiseshell butterflies almost queuing up to get at it|
|Even the Large White butterfly, often referred to as the Cabbage White, abandoned the cabbage patch for the lavender|
|The peacock too was very interested in the it, not for any good reason, only to eat the butterflies|
|And this little lady I thought might be nice here, but I'm afraid she doesn't look too happy.|

|Harry looking happy and content and getting ready to settle down.|
|I wondered if he was just nodding off or hanging his head in shame after eating all my goldfish, again.|

|Bothan Scóir, was usually a small, basic one roomed cottage of the poor landless labourer who worked for the local landlord.|
Most cottages had half doors and earthen floors. The earthen floor comprised of gravel, straw, sand, dirt and clay, sealed with linseed oil. Because of the unevenness of some floors, three legged pots and stools were used, some stools had legs with slightly different lengths, making it easy to position them on such floors.
I took the photo's last August on a visit to Bunratty Folk Park.
