The title, and the content, are more than a nod to Fionola’s recent blog from west Cork in the Roaringwater Journal she and Robert write and which features all they have found of interest in their neighbourhood whether it be architecture, history, the great outdoors and all things natural. Finola’s recent post was about the wildflowers she found in her immediate vicinity (Wandering the Boreens ‹ Roaringwater Journal ‹ Reader — WordPress.com) and I enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d do the same myself.
Now, Finola is obviously more musically inclined than I am and has a musical background to her slideshow but the technical aspects of doing this are beyond me and will remain beyond me as I am the most unmusical of people and have no doubt my choice would probably not be suitable – probably “Welcome to the Jungle” from Guns N’ Roses might well be top of my list but only for the simple reason that I listened to it for some years in the car as I transported our youngest son to school. To be honest to Finola, I only realised she had music to her slideshow because she told us what it was as I have the sound on my laptop turned off by default.
My walk for wildflowers was a very, very local one, just along the road from our house, about 150 metres, and a shorter step down to the bank of the river. It was too hot to do much outdoors here yesterday but I tired of sitting indoors and went for this short stroll. Although it was only a short outing there was a good number of wildflowers to be noticed.
Post Scriptum: Yikes! The last one is Marsh Bedstraw – it looks so like Common Valerian in the thumbnails.
Finola has the eagle eye!
