Wednesday whimsy

5 Jan

January is always a tough month to get through for me. In some ways, it was tougher in Boston with the snow, cold and dark evenings — but skiing was a bit of a reprieve that we don’t have here in Dublin — but MOST of the time, we don’t have the snow or the extreme cold.  Anyway, I have been thinking a lot about Spring.  One of the things I like about Dublin is that you typically see green all year ’round.  You also experience the crocus coming up in late January / early February so it’s always a reminder that Spring is just around the corner. 

Merrion Square, in Dublin, is a great place to be when the sun is shining.  They typically hold weekend events in the square throughout the Spring and Summer.  Here are some photos from just such an event…

    Nice post, Amy. Love the pics. Did you take these shots? The bubble is AWESOME! I do like GREEN space. Probably why I could never live in the dessert. Not enough life! Cheers. Lori
