As we now have past the winter solstice, it is time to look back, remember and be thankful for all that the year brought.
In January we made our own homemade candles and pottered about in the garden.
February brought huge contrasts with a sun filled day spent visiting a magical garden where the bumble bees were already busy at work…
…and also experiencing the most beautiful snow we had ever seen covering our own place in a thick blanket.
April brought lovely weather and we helped our friend the blacksmith to bring some light into his forge.
May was the month when we visited paradise on earth.
In June we spent a magical day on the lake and in the forest.
October saw us take the first short holiday for many years, when we travelled down to West Cork for three memorable days filled with mist, rain and magic.
All in all it has been a most beautiful year and we are blessed to be living in the West of Ireland surrounded by plants, animals and beautiful people.
We hope that your new year will be filled with light, love, friendship and joy.
