The Colors of Ireland

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. 

Ireland is a sensory delight!
