I could write a few volumes about autumn in Ireland but one simple image says more than I can actually verbalise. It is the delicate blooms of fuschia against an old whitewashed wall out in the countryside.
I saw the White House in Washington DC for the first time on a bright sunny day in November 2010. I only learned later that it was designed by an Irishman, James Hoban, from near Callan in Co. Kilkenny.
The elegant building left a lasting impression on my mind and I’m very glad that I actually saw it with my own eyes.
This November, I discovered a White House here in Co. Waterford that has also captured my imagination with its sheer charm and attention to detail.
