Seeing Green

A friend who visited last year told the immigration officer that she was going to “look at green things” when the officer wouldn’t take “visiting my friend” as a plausible reason to come to Ireland.

So, for the day that’s in it, I thought we all might like to just look at a few green things:


A Mná na hÉireann quilt and sign from Cavan County Museum; mossy trees and gravestones in Glendalough.


A mint carafe for my birthday dinner; hydrangeas for an interior colours event; glorious trees in the Phoenix Park.


Castle Caldwell, Co Fermanagh, succumbing to green; “Will you be buried with my people?” megalithic cemetery in Sligo and a place to phone or pray near the Clooneyquinn Post Office in Co Roscommon.


Another trail to walk; this high-viz on the canal path to school, one last time; a perfect spot to picnic in Co Wicklow;


Phoenix Park beauties; my mock orange; along the River Ow, under the shoulder of Lugnaquilla.


Study in green and white, Carton House, Co Kildare; the Irish Sea looking green, Bray, Co Wicklow; once more for the park.


View from Trim Castle, Co Meath; a new office in Dublin 1; a taste of the Knitting and Stitching Show.


The old green pump in Lullymore, Co Kildare; green tile in 14 Henrietta Street, Dublin; a busy February bumble bee in a garden full of Trinity garlic and hellebore.


Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit!
