We’ve been having fabulous weather in Dublin recently, it feels like Summer already.
Here are some photos of Echo Beach, the new version of Seascape I mentioned a while ago – it’s a very simple Summery pattern with curving lines of dropped stitches.
I still have some details to work out, and hope to publish it late next week.
This morning I went to Farmleigh House , a Phoenix Park mansion that used to belong to the Guinness family and is now open to the public (dogs on leads welcome). In addition to the Gallery, the Boudoir, The Library, and the Corridor, it has pastures with cattle and horses, a courtyard food market, a lakeside cafe, and amazing gardens. The weather has been kind to the Magnolias – some of them have beautiful names, like Milky Way, Atlas, and Athene.
The trees were full of birdsong and buzzing. Tree Peonies, Tulips and Wisterias will be highlights in the coming weeks.
