Monday morning was a quick brew, give Fido her two chocolate biscuits (wages for ratting!) and check the moo cows and set off for Lidl. We travelled over the tunnel roads from Glengariff to Bonane. Of course I sang 'Whiskey In The Jar' going through the stone tunnels:
"As I was going over the Cork and Kerry mountains.."
Then we crossed over the bridge and parked up at Lidl. Number one son had alerted us that they were selling battery grinders from today. There were only 2 left. So he bought them both and looked like a cat that had just got the cream.
We decided to go for a ride around the ring of Kerry and visit Kells gardens. Any excuse for a blog subject hey?
Here are some photographs of our visit on such a beautiful June day.
|Stone Buddha. Appropriate for the peace and tranquility.|
|A summer house to die for. I would love such a magnificent construction at my smallholding. Even if it rains you can sit and read or even have a drink. Is it that time already?|
|Carved seat made from a fallen tree.|
|A dinosaur tree?|
|Aren't they clever sculptures?|
|Magical tree fern forest. Have I told you I love tree ferns?|
|A Tree person sculpture.|
|Enormous Arum lilies. We have some that use to belong to my grandmother growing in our garden.|
|Wonderful Gunnera specimens. See their reflections in the water?|
|Magnificent rhododendrons putting on a great floral display.|
