Accents – New Arrivals

I’m exchanging a few accents with Jose at Centro Bonsai Tenerife . I love this aspect of the bonsai community 🙂

Jose’s parcel arrived today with 14 new plants for my collection. A few will need a little extra protection in out Irish climate but most should be fine. I’ll be sending Jose a selection of my hostas once leaves start to drop.

Three mini roses the the mix.

I was able to split a few as well.

Best Hikes on Earth: The Causeway Coast Trail

Great blog I started following over a year ago, well worth a look especially this post from my own wee country 😉

Travels with the Blonde Coyote

After visiting the Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge by car, I ditched my wheels and connected the two sites on foot with a 13-mile trek along the Causeway Coast Trail. I couldn’t have asked for better weather. Ireland gifted me with a warm, breezy, bluebird sunny day!

The Causeway Coast Trail runs through farmland, fishing harbors, seaside villages, across the stunning white sand expanse of Whitepark Bay (check tidecharts for this section- only accessible at low tide), to Ireland’s smallest chapel, past castle ruins and along cliff tops to the Giants Causeway and on to Bushmills, home of the world’s oldest distillery. I’ve hiked a lot of miles on a lot of trails in my life, and this trek definitely deserves to be called one of the best hikes on Earth!

Stay tuned for more from the Emerald Isle and then I’m on to Scotland! For more…
