Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The morning sun on the dewy grass turns the lawn into a carpet bejewelled with millions of diamonds and the (hated), moss is beautiful to walk on, maybe it wets my shoes but I’m sure I have another pair. The lovely scene will be gone very soon and it would be a pity to miss it. With the power of Skype I showed some local scenes to my friends in the faraway Wild West of Nebraska last week where the prairie stands brown still in the tail end of winter and they were amazed at how green everyplace is here. The red camellias and yellow daffodils and multi coloured primroses painting a beautiful picture for me to show to my friends. Sometimes it’s only when you hear others saying how lovely some thing is that you stop a say to yourself, yes it is. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I always leave a seat or chair in different places in my garden where I can sit down at any time and enjoy it and maybe say a little prayer.
