A Tipperary Carpet

Rapeseed Crop below Sliabh na mBan

Hubby took me by surprise yesterday as he arrived home from his beloved Co. Tipperary with this photo.
I had been out on some yellow field forays but to no avail and then he, who works in the carpet world, couldn’t resist this view which includes the iconic Sliabh na mBan mountain which is such a symbol of Co. Tipperary and which can be seen from a range of nearby counties.

The song Sliabh na mBan is synonymous with Tipperary and is played endlessly when the county is playing at Gaelic Games and basically at everything Tipperary-related.

  1. Beautiful photo! We have many canola (rapeseed) fields here. Sometimes they’re situated next to a flax field. If one is lucky to catch them blooming at the same time, the yellow of the canola next to the blue of the flax also makes for a breathtaking view. Ours won’t bloom until into late July.
