Lazy summery days

Some days we just sit and watch the grass grow for neither of us are keen on gardening, that is in the accepted sense as we prefer mother nature to do her stuff and it is only when we cannot find one of the cats that the grass gets cut.

Mrs H relaxes

Today was one of those days when we sat on the sunny south side and enjoyed the sun from mid morning right through until She (moon) showed through with a coronet of cloud around her.

Just as the day was cooling our nearest neighbour brought us six fresh eggs from his hens. It was a timely gift and provided us with a tea of scrambled eggs hot buttered toast.

Exhibition at Brú na Bóinne

Mrs H is currently working away, as she has been for several years now, on a new series of paintings depicting Irish mythology connected to sacred sites in the landscape.

She has done a tremendous amount of research, hours and hours, running into days for each painting. The project started about five years ago from an idea which came to her in the night and then came the preparatory work up of drafting out exactly what had to be done long before a brush came into contact with paint and board.

Unfortunately it is more than my life is worth to show you any of her pieces of art.
What I am able at this moment to announce is that her work will be on view from 14th June for 14 days at the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre for Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth in Co. Meath.

In a few weeks time I will be able to show you a small detail along with an open invitation to view
her work.
