Oh, bucky! She went everywhere. Enjoyed St. Patrick's Day in Blarney. She's a photographer and took some of the most beautiful pictures. What a beautiful place!!!

P.S. How'd you know we call her "Maggie?"

lol, i've told ya, i know everything there is to know about bein' irish.

the northwest, from mayo and sligo up to donegal is the most beautiful of the entire island. i can't wait to go back.

to get this thread back on track, the next time that i go to ireland, i'm going back to my grandfather's house and am going to ask the owner if i could take a cutting of the rhubarb that grows in the back of the property, on the banks of the shannon. the owner (a very nice gentleman who gave me a tour of the house and property when he found out the grandson of the house's builder was in town) says that the rhubarb has been there since the previous owners, a couple of old spinsters, and thinks that they could not have planted it. so it probably was planted by my grandfather. my dad was amazed when he saw my videos of it, and is also sure that it was grandfather's.

so, hopefully i'll be growing irish rhubarb in my garden someday.

DH (who's also my gardener) tills the soil to combine it with good gardening soil. Of course, he has the green thumb not me. He says it helps makes plants healthier and grow beautifully. I just sit and enjoy the garden.
