It won’t be long before I am elbow deep in soil mixture, carefully placing tiny seeds into their pots. Leeks and onions first, some herbs, and then on to the tomatoes and peppers. Right now however, I am back on one of my trips to Ireland and cruising the countryside. A visit this morning to the Black Valley at the Gap of Dunloe to pass along a photograph . A sheep farmer ( 400 hundred head) had us take a photo of her buying a colt at one of the fairs last year. Ireland has had terrible weather during the last month…trees down everywhere and flooding. It was no easy task driving the flooded roads to deliver the picture, but we made it. Sally sat on the hood of her car, taking pictures, while I drove the windy roads through the gap. We often like to pretend we are on safari….ha. Sally is a good sport and doesn’t seem too concerned about sliding off the hood and down over the cliffs of the Gap.
Also, we have found a wonderful Border Collie that we are quite tempted to bring along home with us. I forgot to mention , Rooney, the little Wire Terrier we brought back to the states during our last visit. He is now living a rather charmed and comfy life with Sally’s sister. This farm dog is a gem, very friendly and loving and I am certain would be a fine shepherd for someones flock. Any takers?
