A Week Of Pictures.

This week has been, with one exception, a week of sunshine and days of summer,
and the house hums with the afterglow long into the evening.

The midsummer Solstice is approaching, and in the marsh behind our house the birds sing all through the night.
As I sit here the sun has finally dipped behind the Sugarloaf, and the moths begin to make their slow bumping way in through the open window,

And there! A peacock calls across the fields. Echoing like a forgotten dream of India.

Little feet amongst the daisies.

Sunset over the Sugarloaf.

Moshing the Mama's!

When we live too near the sea...

Lions in the grass.

The sun followed me.

Saturday, Killiney Hill.

The darling of my heart.

On my doorstep.

Normal blogging returns from now!

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend!

As always, I love seeing your life through your eyes and the beautiful poetry you use to share it with us.

It was a beautiful weekend and I'm sorry that school starts again tomorrow.

Thanks for coming last Thursday to my house and sharing Twilight moments together. Let's try and come up with another movie night next month
