A Year On

I was fortunate enough to get to see early Spring unfold in magnificent Mount Congreve Gardens here in Co. Waterford last year before they were closed because of the pandemic.

The Gardens have long been my place to wander and soak in the glory of nature’s colours. I hope it won’t be too long before they open again but meanwhile I often take a little look at some of the photographs I took out there last year and that live on my phone for soothing purposes.

Here’s a tiny sample:

  1. Beautiful place and flowers..Spring holds the promise of new beginnings. Hopefully with the vaccines available it will be new beginnings on the road to good health for all…

  2. that’s something we haven’t had to suffer this side of the pond. my grown up children have a Bampa in South Wales and its been the same there, very strict. It must have been doubly difficult. it is true the people crowd to “beauty spots” on sunny days, but I think outside is better than in, and some poor people live in cities too.

      1. Yes, I’ve reallyy felt for those confined to grotty places. I’m lucky as can get out easily for a good walk in open moorland. I only gave in and adopted myvdaughter’s I phone in December, and am still learning, as quickly as a Luddite can, hence the erratic responses to messages.
