On Sunday 11th of June myself and Chris embarked on a new adventure in singing. At 4pm nine willing souls turned up in spite of the wind and the showers to connect with our land and to let their voices be guided by what it has to offer. Having prepared... Continue reading

Having been incredibly inspired by my chat with herbalist Lisa Guinan a few weeks ago I decided I would love to seek out more people who are making that extra effort to connect with the wild plants around them. Since talking with Lisa I have been looking at our land... Continue reading

When we moved here a year ago we were aware that there was one and possibly more springs on the land. The previous owner pointed out one of them and explained that that was where they got all of their water in years gone by. But of course it was... Continue reading

When I was a young child I always remember going to Belleek Woods in Ballina, Co. Mayo to see the bluebells in the spring. The sight of a carpet of flowers that stretched on for what may have been miles has stuck with me forever. One of those magical memories... Continue reading

At 8.30 this morning I went outside to hang out with the girls. There was mist hanging in the valley between us and the Cliffs of Moher which seems to mean that the day will be settled. Pollyanne decided to have a snooze when I arrived out so I thought... Continue reading

I have been really struck in the last few days by a carpet of daisies which seems to have taken over a portion of a small paddock which we have been reserving near the house. As Hazel and Pollyanne have not had a chance to munch on them they have... Continue reading

It is a fantastic surprise to see yet another flower appearing in the fields this year. Having forgotton all about this flower from last it was great to suddenly be reminded about it as it pops up all over The Land. I had noticed some little plants starting to shoot... Continue reading

Below is a picture of one of our new woodlands that was planted in early spring of this year. The woodland itself is invisible to the naked eye! It's interesting that most of the work in planting a woodland is in the planning. From the moment we got here we... Continue reading

I love to look at flowers really closely. I think I could spend hours looking at one flower if I had the time. But even just a few minutes will bring some surprises and fill my mind with colours and shapes that I hadn't previously noticed. There are many many... Continue reading

Yesterday we took a walk around the edge of the front meadow to look at the beautiful blackthorn flowers that are dotted along the western boundary. For a bush that is so thorny and with fruit so sour it seems surprising to see such delicate white flowers in abundance on... Continue reading
