julykilrush-006As a city dweller I loved stopping at the corner grocer and buying a bouquet of flowers to brighten up my home.  A little color in the concrete jungle.  That little treat would cost at least $10.00 (we’re going back a number of years!) and were imported from thousands of miles away and would be wilting within a few days.  So, imagine my delight at having Chris Marsh of Rainbow Farm in Kilmihil, my neighboring stall holder at the Kilrush Market, selling his homegrown, full of color and variety, spectacular bouquets.  And, for E2.50! That has to be the best bargain in Ireland. I always buy a few bunches, one for me and one for a friend, and they last at least a week. Chris and Hillary also sell organic vegetable and herbs  plants, fruit bushes and homemade chutneys, jams and their own free range eggs. Another great reason to be in the diverse county of Clare.  Up the yellow and blue!
