I have been staying in Ireland with my sister Sara and Mollie, the beautiful golden retriever puppy. We have been on lots of country walks in Co Dublin. Much of our time has been spent contemplating the beautiful views of the Dublin mountains and I would be lying if I didn’t admit I had sampled the local Guiness (much deserved after a long walk with an exuberant golden retriever!)
Most of the inhabitants in these parts seem to be cows, who are very keen to be photographed with their alluring eyelashes all aflutter. Mollie seems to get on very well with the locals and can often be spotted reciprocally licking noses or eating grass together (weird I know but true!)
As you can see by the picture I collected a good range of feathers (even a buzzard feather and one which is, I think, from the native Hooded Crow which are often seen near my sisters house.) I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with them yet but I’m sure I will think of something.
Great fun was had all around!
Don’t forget to look out for the launch of the shopping area of Foxgloves and Feathers on 23rd October 2015.
