    Zooming across the Carlingford Lough to the Mountains of Mourne. Have seen the place in all weather, greengoose2, but I prefer to be warm now my blood is thinned by aspirin. Yes stormy conditions can make far more dramatic scenes.

    Howth in the distance, taken from the East Pier at Dun Laoire on "one of those days".

    Thanks Andrew49 for all the likes.
    I used to spend every Thursday afternoon there between September to December 1968 when I was 15/16 years old with a packet of egg & onion sandwiches and a girl friend from Omeath - she used to mitch school in Dundalk that day. It was a proper ruin then rather than a beautified historical ruin as it is today.

    That area though is still one of the most beautiful parts of the country - in any season.

    Thank you, Andrew49. Nice confession.

    Stayed in today to paint this after getting a book on Claude Monet from the local library. Be gentle.

    Lads!
    I am wrecked.
    And not from the exercise - ultimately not very much of that happened.
    Cause myself and my friend made two new friends:





    They'd obviously fallen out of a nest.
    We were ar$ing around on our phones for ages, tweeting (bless), nothing.
    FInally after about an hour we just put them up high and left, mummy would never have come near with us there.
    We got covered in sh1te.
    One moment that would have made a great picture was when one was sitting up on the arm of my glasses!

    Well done Bea C. Nice photos!



    Watching the blackbird feeding a fledgeling mealworms that I provided was a pleasure today, in my back garden where the flowers brighten the scene.

    A Starling feeding it's young mealworms I placed out for the Blackbird. What a Pirate!
    Nevertheless a magic moment to witness close up. They were just a few feet from where I was sitting after some hectic gardening this morning.
