Sunshine & Flowers at the Weekend

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. We had sunshine here in Ireland so I spent most of my time outdoors. The daffodils in my garden haven't bloomed yet but I picked these ones from the fields and put them in my hallway. The cherry blossom is in bloom too so I have some in the house as well. I love Spring time when everything comes back to life, the days gets longer and it begins to get a little warmer and sunnier. Did you do anything nice this weekend? 

Spring is on its way in Ireland

Last weekend we had dry crisp weather which made such a change. I done lots of Spring cleaning on Saturday and went to a birthday party Saturday night. Sunday I spent time with family and went off for a lovely long walk around the farm in the evening. It was really cold but I wrapped up warm and off I went. Below are some of my photos, you can see how the light was changing and the sun began to set over the lake. I love getting out and about with lots of fresh air...

Church Architecture from around Ireland...

Happy Valentine's Weekend everyone... Hope you are all having fun where ever you are. I haven't taken many photographs recently as the weather is still dull here in Ireland. The days are getting longer though so hopefully Spring will set in soon. I was looking through my photographs today and noticed that I take a lot of photos of churches. When I'm on holidays I always love exploring them and here in Ireland I do the same too. Many of them are closed to the public. I love how each one is different and the architecture is amazing all built by hand. Those that built these churches were true crafts people with so much skill and talent. Which is your favourite?
