The Exuberance of Nature

Sorry for all the reblogs but I still don’t have anything to show you.
I’m enjoying the autumn scenery at the moment but not the cold that has suddenly taken hold of this part of the world. I thought this might be a good time to reblog this old summer post to see if it can remind me of what it feels like to be warm.

Anglo Saxon Celt Creates Art and Craft

This entry was inspired by a post featuring Japanese irises.  I love to see the plants that grow in different countries; some of them are familiar, some not so familiar.  Since you probably don’t live in Ireland (not many people do, apparently) I thought you might like to see some of the things that grow here.

      • I put out feeders in April as nd keep them going until mid – ephemeral I have 4 and they are always busy. It is fun watching them, even when they get all territorial and cranky with each other. I found several tiny deserted nests when doing some autumn work on my Japanese plum trees. Incredible.


      • You’re so lucky. 🙂
        Our bluetits get very territorial too. They peck at their reflections in the windows all around our house. 🙂
