Life In Color: Irish Green

For the month of March Jude has picked Green for the Life in Color Challenge….So I am picking Irish Green, for today, and may do it all month! You can’t get much greener than Ireland!

Ireland has three special features……green land, green water and lots of green plants! Let’s walk up this hill!

OBriens Tower, Cliffs of Moher, County Clare, Ireland

and then we’ll walk in the gardens at Cashel House Hotel……right by the water I might add…..

I was fascinated by these HUGE LEAFED plants……..

What are they Pádraig? Some were 3 feet across!

You can see the water has a tinge of green to it along the old canal system……….beautiful Ireland! I hope you have enjoyed my Irish Green today!

    Ireland’s green for a reason – lots of rain.

    Irish green it is! Do you have a special connection with Ireland and is it somewhere you return to? I’ve only seen the southern end of the west coast and Dublin. Never made it to Galway or those wonderful Cliffs of Moher 😦

    1. We have traveled many weeks over the west coast of Ireland and many weeks over the east coast of Ireland. It was the first place I wanted to go to when we started traveling to Europe, twice a year, in the early 2000’s. However, it was cold, windy and rainy (in August) and I quickly decided there were warmer places I wanted to see!

    Sue is right, it’s gunnera. It’s similar to rhubarb x50.

    You’ve certainly captured some green places in Ireland. I love the Cliffs of Moher but I love even more the valleys where the rain settles and gives the grass that bright, bright Emerald shade.

    I enjoyed your Ireland “green” from across the pond – here in the U.S. I have been reading Maeve Binchy’s tales from Ireland to saw your photos a bit through her eyes.

    1. Pat, I have every book Maeve Binchy ever wrote, I think! Fabulous writer………Have you read “Writer’s Club?” by her? It was written when she taught a class in Dublin, and it is still one that I go back to often! The best advice I gained from her was, “write like you talk” it is your voice and I have always tried to do that! Cady

        Writer’s Club is now on my list! I write as I speak – only I clean it up a bit with some good editing. 🙂 Binchy has been very helpful in keeping me sane with Covid and politics, etc.

    Lovely Irish greens, like Wales and Cornwall, Ireland owes its green to the mild and damp climate! I see you have already been given the name of the plant – Gunnera – the large rhubarb plant. Grows in several Cornish gardens. In Trebah there is even a passageway through them! https://smallbluegreenflowers.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/garden-portrait-trebah/
