Apologies, it has been a while. I have been hibernating since Christmas, but now the skies are blue, the daffodils are peeping through and Spring is in the air. I love this time of year. This morning I was in Connemara and I took a drive through Ballynahinch-Castle, how lucky am I to have such a beautiful place on my Mothers doorstep? You will see pictures of the Castle on their web site, I did not take any of the building today as they were busy painting and cleaning and cutting ivy etc. guess this is how they maintain their high standard. I did take some pictures of the lake and Gate Lodge, I think it look magical, I would love to live there.
