|The view from my room|
BUT be that as it may, yesterday i spent the evening in The Narrows, listening to the winner of the Maison aux thingy heritage gardens competition. He is now gardening in Helen's Bay Walled Garden and i think that maybe i may get together with a few people in the area and try and turn our gardens into biodynamic gardens. It could happen. There is a real impulse in the area to warrant a few of us getting together and getting started. Must chat to someone about this...
|Oh the gorgeous Brent Geese|
|The SILENCE - that is what i love about the place|
|Simple, beautiful rooms at the Narrows Social|
|Photographs of the sky i will doubtless take unless i get the camera fixed|
|I think the camera is also now jumbling up the order of the pictures....|
|Could be an artistic endeavour|
|Once in a while now... that perfect shot|
Today i went running in Belvoir Park for the second time in two days. Plus the trip to Strangford sandwiched in between, i had the feeling of living in a very ancient landscape. The geese, the tides and then the ancient forest of Belvoir. There are yew trees there which are so so old, since the first neolithic settlement there. I remember when i first ran through the place and wished i knew the names of the trees - their species and now i do. I could say, that is a chestnut, that is sycamore, that is beech and birch and oak, of course, and that is holly and that is hawthorn. I may not know my birds too well, but i can tell the trees apart really well.
It feels like things are coming together very naturally, without having to force things. I sort of like that.
This week is all about getting the house clean, getting organised for Oisin going away, getting admin done... it will be very busy, but also running everyday and being focused about the coming Advent festival. Oh god, i have to write an article. I have just remembered... must do that now...
