Blarney Castle, Co. Cork, Ireland
I love having visitors! They give you that extra nudge to go out and see what's beautiful in your neighborhood again. And so it was that Dario, my friend Adria, and I headed up to Blarney Castle. The last time I'd visited it was winter, so much of the grounds and gardens were sleeping and gray. This time, however, it was different!
Yay for summer! (View on Flickr: http://bit.ly/nrkjhl)
The Blarney Castle Gardens are beautiful at any time of year. Each season highlights a different mood. Dress in layers and bring your sense of wonder. You'll find many lovely things to appreciate. :)
Northern Hemisphere folks, how is your summer going?
Southern Hemisphere folks, are you keeping warm this winter?
(Equatorial folks, I envy you! ;)
