this little bird and other "littles" just like him
visited the stone wall border
at the Irish cottage we stay in on our Ireland visits
this is a picture from a two thousand seven Ireland visit
and on this trip we had plenty of rainy days, gorgeous rainbows
it is a "given" that you'll have rain in Ireland
but it is a different rain . . . more like a shower . . . then some bright spots
the rains might continue like that off and on all day
and the rainbows are like no other
Crocosmia and Fuchsia are prolific, beautiful oranges and reds.
we rebuilt that stone wall on this trip
gathered stone from around the cottage and the roadways
the little birds were so friendly sitting there eating the crumbs
while we worked away on the wall
that is mister garden house giving me a thumbs up for finishing the wall
those rocks were heavy indeed
a few more views
the first photo was taken from the cottage
looking out toward the garden house onto
the final photo is of the road that leads to the garden house and cottage
very narrow road that both "to and fro" cars travel
cars are much smaller there, you just pull over, let the other pass
with hand on the steering wheel
the pointer finger is used to communicate
the moving over and a thank you
I will be celebrating my five years of the
Irish Garden House
in these next few weeks with photos and stories from our trips to Ireland.
Little Irish Bird
visits you today along with the many other visitors on Eileen's
It's easy to be pleasant when life flows like a song.
But the man worthwhile is the one who can smile
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble and it always comes with years.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through tears.
