Spring is here (or is it summer?) hmm… The ” official” word is that the freezing cold of last winter, coupled with the warm days of March and April have done wonders for the spring  foliage in Ireland. The spring gentians are bluer than ever and the Black Thorn Flowers are blinding! A bumper crop of sloe berries will make for a merry sloe gin bonanza next Christmas. But for now, we’re just enjoying the warm sunny days and cool nights of a very special time of year in one of the most beautiful corners of the world.  Happy Easter!
