Green, glorious, cool and wet. . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . all expected as we travel through much of Ireland's
beautiful countryside over the next few weeks.

Waterproof boots and jackets packed,
umbrella at the ready!

So dear readers, off we go to the Emerald Isle. Am I ready? No, not quite. 
Will I ever be ready? Not if I stay here blogging!
I'll try to post now and then, and hopefully can share some photos
along the way. 

Yesterday in my garden.
Sad to leave when all is green and blooming . . . . . . . . . .
and the Carolina wrens have just built another nest in the wall basket
 by the front door under the COTTAGE sign.
Our front porch is very popular this Spring.
Sadly I'll miss seeing these new family members as they will most 
likely have hatched and fledged by the time I'm back!

Tonight we fly across the pond to Heathrow, London, then straight on to
 Dublin in the morning ~ returning by the same route beginning of June.
 Will catch up with you then.
Be good to yourselves.


  1. Safe and happy travels Mary - good prediction it is pouring with rain this morning!!! but hopefully it will clear in a couple of hours. Dublin's fair city is a great place to begin, lively, fun, interesting, and full of the blarney. Hope you get to see the Giant's Causeway in the north, it is spectacular. Take care both of you.

  2. Safe journeys and have a wonderful time!! Sure looking forward to seeing many many beautiful photos and reading about your adventures soon!

  3. Wishing you a wonderful holiday Mary. Have a great time and I look forward to hearing all about it when you return.
    ....... I hope you have a kind neighbour to water your garden while you are away !!!!! Safe travels. XXXX

  4. I hope you have a great holiday Mary, I have never been to Ireland myself, its one of the places we hope to visit before we get too old to travel.

  5. Dear Mary, I know what you mean about leaving your beautiful garden. Have a wonderful and safe trip. Already looking forward to a few photos as you travel through lush and green Ireland.

  6. Have a wonderful trip Mary, hoping to see some shots from that beautiful part of the world. Your garden is so lush and lovely, I can see why it would be hard to leave. Safe travels.

  7. I hope you have a wonderful holiday Mary.

  8. Oh what bliss Mary. Please find the time now and then to send a few snaps.

  9. Bon Voyage! Looking forward to hearing all about it.

  10. Enjoy your time and take no worries with you. We'll all be here when you look for us again. And your garden will be every bit as delightful in June as it is in May. Take lots and lots of pictures!

  11. Mary and Bob, Looking forward to your posts and if Bob is able to locate some relatives. May your travels be safe and enjoy this trip. Hugs

  12. Enjoy it. I know I need to visit Ireland some time soon. It always looks so lush and green in photos.

  13. I seem to be reading these posts backwards. Your garden and cottage are so wonderful - but you will have a grand time on your vacation - can't wait to see the photos.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
