What a big change from that glorious summer last year!
Antrim Castle Gardens, and the 6-Mile Water – if you’ve never been, I’d really recommend it!
I suppose when we get a proper Summer – hose-pipe bans, dried-up dams, Irish people (who haven’t been to foreign parts) with suntans, a national Ice-cream shortage – we think it’s always going to be like that. Well not this year – as I write it’s steaming hot, but raining.. As the old joke says: In an Irish summer, the rain just gets warmer!
As usual, my photographs are taken on the good days – in years to come when my daughter looks at old photographs, she’ll think that the sun always shone- nothing wrong with that, to my mind!
A sunny afternoon in May, admiring the Bluebells at Minnowburn Beeches near Belfast
I love the sounds of these fountains in Belfast city centre! I think the water sounds like Irish dancing!
”It’s 11am on a Sunday morning” I said, ”there’ll be no one at the Dark Hedges!”
The beach near Murlough Bay on Mr Saturday Night’s birthday in May
Mr Saturday Night bribed this robin with crumbs from his scone!
A particularly happy day for our family, as my sister received her Doctorate from Trinity College Dublin – I think this picture says it all!
I’d never managed to get to see the Mussenden Temple until now, but we picked the most glorious day to visit!
The view from one side of Grianan of Ailach in Co. Derry. Apparently you can see 6 counties from there!
