I remember seeing a really cool picture of you and your family in Ireland. My guess is somewhere in Ireland... not sure where. Beautiful scerery!! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Love your blog!!

"May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door" -- also an Irish blessing.

And keying that in made me wonder -- do you ever do moon shadows?

Other than Ireland, I can't guess a specific location for that gorgeous photograph, but it *is* gorgeous. I had my England photos out the other evening, remembering the green, green, green-ness (yes, indeed, I'm ready for spring and color!)

I am sure this will be in the west of Ireland (wilder than Cornwall, England, though it could have been there, too). But the green-ness of Ireland - it has to be Ireland, being St. Patrick's Day - has to be seen to be believed. A deep lime green, deeper than emerald. I never forget watching the approaching shoreline from the ferry and noting all the greens I could see; I was mesmerised and starting collecting yarns to knit a shawl that would capture the memory.

My great grandmother was Irish. And my granddaddy, her son, was born on St. Patrick's Day. :)

"La Feile Padraic shona duit!" Thank you for your St. Patrick's Day greeting, my friend! I hope your day was grand! Could it perhaps be the Aran Islands??

Hmm.....it looks like it is in Count Clare. Will we ever know? Beautiful anyway, I wish I was Irish :)

The Answer is:
The Aran Islands, Ireland
one of my favorite places on this earth.

Oh, God, I have them in the background of many of my pictures of Cliffs of Moher, thanks to the good weather that day :) This year I may want to see the Cliffs from the Islands. By the way, Ireland is my favorite place on Earth!
