Home Style

What a beautiful weekend. The weather was just perfect, lots of sunshine and warm too. I spent most of the days in the garden and around the house. I also bought some new clothes for my holidays... Today we went to the lake and the forest for a walk. I love being at home when the weather is good... Below are a few images from around the house this weekend. Sorry for the messy kitchen...

Ireland in Summer

I've taken today off work so I have a long weekend. Who doesn't love long weekends. The weather has been so mixed here this week, rain, sun, clouds, wind and more rain. The sky is really dull today so not very good weather for taking photographs. Instead I took a look back over some of my summer photographs and pulled out these ones from my walk around the farm... When the weather is sunny here, there is no where else I would rather be!

Wanderlust set in so I had to book some Holidays

I got totally fed up with the Irish weather this week so I went and booked a holiday... Both myself and my husband feel we both need a nice break and some sunshine so we're heading back to the beautiful city of Venice again, then on to Croatia, Greece and Turkey... I love exploring new places and while I have been to Venice before we will have two days there now and then on to lots of new locations.... Below are a selection of my photographs from my trip to Venice two years ago.. #exciting #holidays

This Weekend I'm Gardening...

Now that Summer is here, I am trying to get my garden into shape. I have set a wildflower patch like last year and also some nice flowers along my fence. I had to remove half of my shrub bed as the soil was very poor and now I am in the progress of extending it in the opposite direction with the help of my husband. I hope to plant hydrangea, some lavendar perhaps lupins and alliums. I know very little about gardening so any tips or any guidance is welcomed. Do feel free to comment. Is it too late to start planting flowers or any suggestions of some nice ones to plant?

Below are some photographs I took of my recent trip to Lissadell House & Gardens, most of them are from the Alpine Garden. I can only dream of having a garden like this...

Exploring the Wild Atlantic Way

As you know I love getting away to the sea, while I don't swim I love the sea air, it is so refreshing and good for the soul. A few weeks ago we went for a night to Donegal and toured along the Sligo coastline of the Wild Atlantic Way. Below are a few photographs from our trip.

From top: Mullaghmore sea front, Church ruin with ox eye daisy, cows relaxing at Streedagh (they don't even move when cars drives by), the remainder of the photographs are from Streedagh Beach.
