Reflections...


Along the River Lagan towpath one evening we were able to see the new apartments under construction and their reflection!

Rose Gardens...a late visit


These are photos from my visit to the Rose Festival at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon park, South Belfast last year.  I was only able to go after the best of the blooms had passed.

The roses are spread out over quite a large area of parkland.

The skies were pretty unusual that day too.



An area of trellis fencing and some smaller roses just fading.





These late bloomers were still lovely and sweetly scented.

Thankful for all my senses and the beauty of creation!

Temperance Gymnasium Sign


Set up in the 1880's in Lisburn for young men, the Temperance Institute Gymnasium gave them somewhere to train and keep out of the public houses.


Presently the hall is used as part of the Bridge Community facility for public events.

Kids these days!


This is the latest mural from the 'R Space' Gallery workshop entitled 'Kids these Days!'

I think my daughter is right to say this is a judge about to drop the gavel of judgement on today's youth and condemn them all.  Do you think that's the message from this mural?

Right beside it is this CHAOS mural.

Look me in the eye...


Whilst crouched down among the grass and dandelions with the macro lens on, I had the good fortune of catching the eye of this little critter.  Great photo op - I don't mind flies in the field, just not in my house!

Floral Friday


I couldn't resist sharing a few more dandelion shots...



My favourite bright blue forget-me-not...


I have just learned the name of this spring flower is the cuckoo flower and it is a delicate little beauty.


Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments on yesterdays post.

Happy weekend!

Field of Wishes...


I have taken hundreds of photos this past week of dandelions and appreciated once again their stunning gossamer beauty and design.  I am so thankful for fields of unspoilt natural beauty on my doorstep!

Did you pick dandelion clocks and blow on them and make wishes as a child! We did!

These were taken just after midday but we returned in the evening and were thankful for a gorgeous sunset and soft light for more photos!




The soft evening light illuminates these gossamer hairs.


Halo effect

Cow parsley lines the lane arched by the trees.



 And so ends another day of wishes come true... I am blessed.
