Out of the Mist

Bluebells and Wild Garlic

Yesterday was a misty day in Ireland, and I was on a morning hike in Crosshaven, in County Cork. As this village is on the coast, the mist was slow to rise, and you will see from the photos that this made the scenes very eerie at times.    We walked from the village through a wood where the predominant smell was that of the wild garlic which is blooming everywhere at this time. There were also a lot of bluebells in bloom, which were very pretty under the trees.  A word of warning though, watch your step in the mud, or you may end up like this!



Missed my step….covered in mud!

    Are the white-ish flowers wild garlic?? I never knew that, and they are everywhere around the woods at the house!

    Lovely set of pics Joan. I feel sorry for those people that never get out to see and appreciate all that is on offer for free.
