Cattle grazing in the fields.. a very very common sight

  8. Thank you everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Saint Patrick's Day, I missed the parade here at home as I had to go away :(

    Gypsyrose we have lots of lakes everywhere, our town has about 400 people but we have 3 lakes within the town boundary so its nice.

    Janean yes it is very quiet where I live, we are very remote the nearest large town with around 6,000 people is over half an hour away, we are two and a half hours away from the nearest city.

    It was great to have today off work and just relax :) Thanks for stopping by!

    All things nice...

  9. Happy St Patrick's Day to you too! I thought of you this morning and just knew you would be posting some beautiful images of your Emerals Isle! So pretty.
    Good day to you,

  10. Happy St. Paddy's Day, loved the tour of Ireland.

  11. Hello: Your blog was brought to my attention by a friend who found your blog mentioned because we were all posting sayings etc about St. Patrick's Day. I live in Canada and we quite like to wear our green and spout silly sayings on this day. Especially when our grandparents came from your lovely country. I last was there visiting family in 2006. We long to go again. The little white cottage looked just like the one in the village of Kilmacrennan in County Donegal. My husband's grandmother came from there. So, have a great day and it was nice to visit your lovely blog. Valerie

  12. Oh, I have been enjoying your blog for a while now but particularly loved today. We went to Ireland a year and a half ago and we loved it. I took so many pictures of the sheep - I just loved them!!!! With there colorful hind quarters. The country is beautiful and we (or I) very much hope to go back some day. Thanks for sharing these wonderful things with us.
