 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.

May Day (Lá Bealtaine)

Bealtine the celtic beginning of summer.

Summer snowflake down by the riverside
Across the road, over the neighbours garden wall

Apple blossoms in the back garden

One of the several shrubs in the front garden

Daisies glistening in the sun
and Primroses at the edge of a walking path.
To-day the hymn "Flowers of the Rarest" is usually played on our local and national radio stations. 
Here is a verse of the hymn:
Bring flowers of the rarest, bring blossoms the fairest,
From garden and woodlands and hillside and dale
Our full hearts are swelling, our glad voices telling
The praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.
