Mermaids Purse

Earlier this year while wandering the beaches nearby, I came across an unusually large number of Mermaids Purses in various colours and shapes, some I had never seen before. These curious flotsam that wash up on the tide are the egg cases of sharks, ray, dogfish and other similar sea beings and yet they conjure up something more mystical, magical and altogether more charming.

Pumpkins galore

house. I will miss the view of the sea, the freedom of rural living and the fresh produce from the land. Moving to the village will be a sea of change and make life easier on many levels. The sea is still only a short bike ride away and the native woods close by, nature is so important for me to refocus and reground. Continue reading Pumpkins galore

A magical time.

Today is one of those truly magical times after a night of thunder and heavy rain, when the fog is thick, the air is humid and the fairy folk are only just beyond our scope of vision. My 2 year old grandson accompanied me on my morning wander with my camera and said โ€œhelloโ€ to many of the little people. It is rare to see so many dew dropped bedecked spider webs as I did today, I was completely in awe of the spectacle. Even the tallest pines were strewn from bottom to top.

Trees and silk, my two loves

Bringing an idea from the initial thought, to sketch to fruition takes its own sweet time. It has to be allowed to be born when the elements are ready to come together. My current creation is a fantastical hat made from sari silk ribbons, silk, cotton, felt and silk wools. Beads will be added too. There my be Celtic symbols too as this is most definitely an Irish hat. Continue reading Trees and silk, my two loves

Musings.

Yesterday evening I spent a few hours out wandering with my thoughts and my camera. I am blessed to have a magical place close by to immerse myself in, to watch the seasons change, the cycles of life turn and the wonder of natures beauty explode in a riot of colours and aromas.
I love getting up close to the flora and fauna and trying to capture some of the essence, to wonder and sometimes I am inspired to write a few words. Continue reading Musings.

Green fingers…again

Time just seems to be flying by, weeks disappearing into months. One happening that remains constant are the cycles of life and also natures ability to recover. Back in April, the lady who owns the place we live asked if I would like to build a vegetable garden where some old decking lay. An unusable part of the garden that needed a facelift. One thing I seems to do is bring back old gardens and give them new life wherever I have lived, be it here in Ireland, in Spain and in Morocco. I was up for the challenge. While the space was being cleared and new soil added, it was time to decide on a plan. The property was scoured for reusable resources. old fencing posts, old decking, tree rings, stones etc. Willow twigs were cut to make fences and plants were bought from garden centres. Hopefully my choices will grow into an amazing colourful feature. Continue reading Green fingers…again
