Irish weather is always a hot topic (excuse the pun) but when one day you wake up to a dark sky and thundering cold wind. The next day it is beaming sunshine and heat. It is no wonder Irish people are so besotted with the weather.
However I am discovering that there is another hot topic in our house – strange things that pop up in the garden.
See for yourself. I look forward to the many varied comments that will follow the pictures below.
I was weeding and discovered this gorgeous plant, weed??
Then this odd looking object. I wonder who or what planted it?
The answer in this house is simple. Take a look at these pictures,
Bob hunkers down for a boring day of watching me clean the house,
Ellie, gathers every sock she can find, and then hides them creating her own version of: “Go Find”
Even the sunflowers start to turn away, as though attempting to hide from the impending rain. (Also note, gate painting had to stop, though the painter was not sorry about this change of plans).
Days are stretching – indicating Spring is here even if the weather is contradicting this.
Bob does enjoy a good roll in the frosty grass.
Or a snooze in the sun while windows are cleaned.
While on a morning walk we noticed that weddings are happening.
Best of all, the woods are full of fun stuff to do,
just as well really as it has taken two days to post this to the site.

A walk which Ellie tried to turn into a game of chase
but I wasn’t having any of it.
The field was flooded so walking and definitely running was off the timetable , for me, instead I decided on a snooze, meanwhile the other pair had made a new friend
or was it a friend and a half?

It is no wonder Irish people spend many hours talking or lamenting the weather.
In the past few days we have gone from this:
to this, (the vertical lines are large drips of rain falling from the roof)
I AM NOT GOING FOR A STUPID WALK!
To all those who think I sit around all day and pose…
Here is the proof
though Maria took her time taking the pictures and
it was very cold. I kept Ellie moving.
Then I had a rest.
The grass was nicely frozen and cold. Delicious.
