As you may have guessed from my last post, we just returned from a family vacation to Ireland. While I had always heard that the Emerald Isle was breathtaking, I was still amazed by the vibrant colors that I encountered.
Even in mid-October the ground was covered by a luscious carpet of green.
Fiery wildflowers . . .
and verdant ferns evoke an untamed antiquity.
Orange and red leaves signal autumn.
Smooth, white stone against clear, blue skies . . .
and ancient white stone walls mark the passing of time.
Warm sunset hues along the Ring of Kerry.
The Cliffs of Moher are shrouded in rich green grass and moss.
