The Lace Makers of the Mountains

Yesterday we went on a hike in the Knockmealdown mountains, between County Waterford and County Tipperary.   On the way there was a lot of fog and mist, which burned off in the heat (yes, heat in October) of the day.     There were so many spiders’ webs in the hedges, looking like delicate lace hanging by a thread from the blades of grass.

Even though the mist lifted, we could still see the low clouds in the distance, sitting over the Golden Vale between us on the Knockmealdown Mountains, and the Galtee Mountains in the distance.

It was a strenuous day, but worth it for being out in the sunshine with beautiful scenery.

        Hello Joan, sorry for late reply! I’m really good thank you, I’m not blogging any more though. I guess blogging for me was an outlet for the the things I was having trouble dealing with. Looking back on some of the things I wrote, I can’t believe that was me. Life is so much better now!
        I hope you are well too!
        Love, Jane xx
