Tree from the Dawn of Time


Almost 5,000 years ago, this scots pine was part of a mighty forest in Stone Age Ireland. Then it tumbled over and was preserved to this day by the local peat bog. I love its swirling ripples. They make you want to stroke it, which of course I did.

Surviving the Storm


Instead of curling up in the safety of his nice warm burrow,this bedraggled bunny ventured out into the storm in search of food. He spent at least an hour solemnly munching his grass in the pouring rain before lolloping off back home again.

Irish Weather


In Ireland it's either bright sunshine or pouring with rain. Sometimes the weather gets really manic and does both at the same time.
