Daisy for a friend

I have to admit that this year we were blessed for a first time in 6 years with a real summer, followed by a mild autumn which actually turned into an Indian summer


How much better can it get?! Probably not much, so it's better if I leave it at that, I say, and let's keep our fingers crossed, so far we got away with a lot of bad weather (well there was that random tornado on the other side of Galway...) but I shouldn't talk too much it's still in the middle of October so I will really change the subject and I will start talking about daisies!

 Daisy for you
I promised a couple of friends from the states that I will tell them about my secret daisy place. Somewhere in Oughterard, off Cregg road, there is a little lane that leads off into the fields and ends there in the middle of nowhere. Hidden in the bracken and the briers there is a ruin of a barn which no one would notice most of the time except in June and July when the place goes wild and crazy with daisies. They simply grow everywhere - around, on top and throughout the ruins. If you don't see it with your own eyes you won't believe it. So here you go, my images from the Daisy ruin. A sweet memory from last and other summers.

Enjoy everyone 
and don't hesitate to comment!!  
For all of you who love daisies!


This is how the the Daisy ruin looks like in the summer covered with daisies from top to bottom.

You can actually climb to the top ( NOT RECOMMENDED because the roof has collapsed and there is a big hole in the middle) and guess what!? there are daisies growing there as well!!!

I have been going to this place for many years and believe me it was very difficult 
to select just a few images for this new blog post.

Sometimes I like to take something different and I like to experiment :)
