Bright day for a spring walk

Hi folks hope you can join me for a spring walk in the green fields near home. I know many of you are still snowed under and cold but maybe this can help you imagine the brightness and coming warmth of spring. The  sky is so blue and fresh looking and the fields are sprucing up for new lush grass for the dairy herds which will be freed from the barns soon.

The road winds on past a very sweet little old Irish farmstead.
This is a peek through the garden gate - see the snowdrops? 

 The whitewashed walls and bright red doors and pillar tops are very traditional to this part of Ireland.

This is the wee cottage beside the red roofed shed. 

Now I have tried to get a pic of our kind of robin redbreast but they are shy and fly off too quickly.
So here's one from google. they are so tiny but so cute!

Well thanks again for coming along - hope you had fun!

Best wishes


  1. Hi Christine,
    Wow they are little! Not to mention they are so cute. So glad you found a photo.
    I love the walk and the red on the tops of the wall and the shed it looks so pretty. The sky looks so pretty as well. What a beautiful place you call home.

  2. Just the bit of Spring I needed.
    Thank you sweet friend.
    Woolie Hugs

  3. Oh Christine, thank you for the wonderful Spring pictures, so needed that. Blowing snow here, yukk!!!! Love the wee Robin, sweet, Blessings Francine.

  4. Hi, Christine, Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures! Hopefully, this will be the end of the snow here. You certainly live in a beautiful place!

  5. I enjoyed our walk! I didn't know where to look first...maybe that beautiful blue sky! And I love that sweet bird. We had a couple of different birds capped chickadee was one. Sweet hugs!

  6. Thanks for taking us along on the walk, that was wonderful. That robin is so cute

  7. Alas... there is hope! lol! Our yard is pretty much still covered with about a foot of snow... starting to melt away though...

  8. What a sweet walk Christine! Hope to someday see it all in person, but for now, we'll live vicariously through YOU!! LOL

    Our snow is almost gone already and warmer temps are coming our way ~ YAY!!

  11. Ireland is such a beautiful country. Thanks for taking us on a walk. Love your robins. They look a little like our bluebirds.

  12. I've been thinking of you :) My nephew and his family are moving from Romania to Ireland. They've lived in Romania for about 3 years now, and are looking forward to this next phase of their life. My daughter definitely wants to find a way to visit them there :)
    Hope all is well.

  13. There is nothing like your first Spring walk after a long winter. How refreshing. I am happy for you.

  14. Wow! Absolutely breathtaking. Your robin does look a bit like our blue bird! So cute! (Shhhh. I like your robin better than ours...Ours have an attitude. ) love and hugs!!!!!!!!!
