the colors of Ireland

It’s my birthday today.  Yay for 39!   To celebrate I’m going a bit off the sewing-and-making track and just sharing an explosion of color.

Our visit to Ireland was full of the most intense colors and I love the way a vacation can open the senses.  You slow down enough to notice.

Ireland’s near constant rain makes for an almost rainforest-like array of growth.  It was impossible not to be impressed and inspired.
