It's spring!

Today a big day... I posted my book- Flying on Little Wings off to the printers.

If you've read the book-baby blog, the suggestion would be that my books (or I) have entered the 'delivery room'. Delivery will take another ten days or so ... A slow birth, but hopefully a healthy one!

Body not really happy at the moment to say the least, but again I find healing in the nature.
This morning I saw a black cap in the garden.
Apparently they usually leave this Island of Ireland for the winter, but some stay over in the south of the country.... my garden!
I remembered the few crocuses peaking out there bright yellow heads in the front garden, so went out there with my camera. It's lovey to see their happy faces in amongst the dead garden debris.
While out there, I saw a magpie flying up to it's enormous nest in the trees on the other side of the field.
And then there is the rhubarb... sticking its fresh spring foliage out from among horse-dung. No matter how much I try to protect it from the frosty nights- it just wants to be the first of the edible plants to show it's face.

So... spring is here!!!

Well thank you my dear friends, It is lovely to be cared for from the other side of the Irish Sea and "down under"!
I rested! and enjoyed the rest too!
Sue, (and Dianne) I was allerted a while ago that I appear on google-earth when they visited my town of Lismore. The other day I looked it up and "walked" all the way to my house. Here is the link.,-95.677068&sspn=44.339735,75.585938&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Lismore,+County+Waterford,+Ireland&layer=c&cbll=52.13946,-7.926732&panoid=fo73txPy5CpMTnaUsGmPRg&cbp=12,263.59778199999994,,0,0&ll=52.139398,-7.927137&spn=0.000984,0.002146&z=19
if you turn around you'll see a silver car- in front of my house. ... before I got my hands on the garden. You can see the view that I have from my house and the pathway is the one to Ballynelligan. You can almost follow in cirrus' footsteps!
XX Hope you are both well!!!
