On a walk the other day at Turlough Park, here in Co Mayo, I was reminded of Patti’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge for this week – Reflections.
Thank you to all who have read and supported my blog. It is a honour to be part of this WordPress community.
I hope you all get the time to share with the ones you love this festive holiday. These are the greatest gift we can give, love and time.
Today, the 21st December is the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. Finally day length will start going the right way. We’ve had a grey few weeks and have not seen much sunshine. But the sun was there briefly this morning just as it rose about 9am only to be swallowed by a bank of cloud.
Wishing you all a lovely Winter Solstice
In the west of Ireland, we have no shortage of farm animals. Among my favourite are the poultry. Especially chickens. I could watch them all day, they are such characters. This is Junior. He is very handsome.
This is Junior’s father and some of the hens. We can’t let Junior and his father be too near each other because they fight, and every morning there is a competition to see who can crow the loudest.
Just down through the fields this is our neighbour’s donkey.
Our other neighbours farm cattle and deer.

I urge all of you to listen to the words of fifteen year old Greta Thunberg from Sweden who spoke so eloquently at the United Nations COP24 conference – you can find an article and video link to her talk here.
She is so right – we the people hold the power and we must make the changes. Greta is inspiring and I only wish our politicians would listen to her wise words. She will be my 2018 hero.
