Our visit to the famous Walled Garden at Old Connaught Avenue this week was an uplifting experience . Walled Garden, beautiful flowers, allotments, terrapins, wildlife all await you!!! I never saw so many bumble bees and honey bees all working feverishly in the lavender rows. It is a photographers paradise!!!!
NO ADMITTANCE FEE!!!!

A Walk up Bray Head
Lots and lots of wildlife and scenic beauty on this walk!!! Start at the roundabout beside the Wilton Hotel then up to the Cross on Bray Head then cross the gate on the right . This part of the walk will bring you over the top of Bray Head and eventually down to the Old Greystones Road. (Definitely not a walk to be missed)

Some of the birds on the Dargle River beside The People’s Park this afternoon, Sunday, 5th, May, 2019.
There were two herons and a junior which I have found out are called Branchers which I believe means taken to the branchers.
Also at the same time most of the birds decided it was time to bathe!!!
Because a Solar Eclipse is so rare
I decided I would share these photos
which I took in my back garden with you.
