Eily’s Report – 28th February

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

The last day of the second month of 2023, the cold winds of last week gave way to a beautiful mild sunny start to this week.  Having woken early, well early for the likes of me, just before 8 am,  I decided that’s enough of that  for now, I’ll get up. On drawing the curtains I was blinded by to strong morning sun shining in. Donned my dressing gown and in a short while I was out in the garden. The beauty and peace all around me was there to be enjoyed. I think that the birds like it when we go outside and spend some time in their world. The little robin flitted from one branch to the other and twitted his lovely song for me while many more fed greedily on the peanuts. In the morning sun the buds on my Camelias were  plain to see, daffodils springing up all over the place and also wild garlic and coming into flower, the old fashioned shrub, the flowering current which has followed me  through the years, from the place  where I was born  at Liscahane to where I  spent so many happy years in the shadow of Kilmeedy Castle to my present abode in peaceful Geararoe. It’s funny how we like to bring the past with us when we have to move. We made no wonder of these  at the time. It’s only when we see them after we leave that we want to have them in our own place and share them with the family when they too move on. It forms a sort of an invisible thread which binds us all together.
