Distant Green Drumlins

In mid-August I flew out of Bangalore for a holiday back home on the family farm in Northern Ireland. The Irish countryside is renowned for being green, so here are my greenest photos.

When we have surplus green, we harvest it, and cart it away in big trailers, to make room for more green to grow in its place.

All across County Down there are barns full of green-ness.

      When the weather is good, you can’t beat Ireland. Just a pity we need so much rain to make everything green.

        Too true. But it’s like that in the Caribbean too. All that beautiful and exotic floral and fauna, but so much rain during rainy season. Oh well….they are both extremely beautiful places.!

      Thank you. I have been out taking more farming photos this morning. Now I have remembered why I hate nettles. Not all green things are lovely.
