2006_-_dublin_norah's_place

I was very lucky to get this place to stay while I was working in Dublin. Norah's place as I called it was a new bungalow with a very nice self contained one bed flat annexed at the end. While I had initial worries because of the closeness of the airport and this being under the flight path I soon became used to the sound of the planes and didn't notice them at all.

2006-01-01-0012 Sometimes, hanging my washing out in the early morning mist didn't get them dry.
2006-09-17-0010 The flora in this area also appeared to take on a magical quality. Something as simple as berries on a plant just had to looked at.
2006-09-17-0011 While here I got quite interested in mushrooms. I'm not brave enough to try eating any but I can see why ancient people thought them magical. The garden had a huge variety over the months.

2006-09-17-0017 There were neighbours but they were some way off.
2006-11-11-0033 I watched this inkcap grow from a tiny stalk to a great white open capped fungus before Sean went and cut the grass and chopped it down
