To Market................To Market!

Valentines Day, we visited a well known garden centre in the western suburbs where they were also holding a farmers market on the day. All sorts were there including live chickens,Alpacas,arts and crafts,food stalls,basketry and live music as well as the array of lovely plants and flowers.The day was cold but a lovely bright blue sky overhead ensured the crowd was up for the outdoor browsing and eating!A bit cold for gardening but lots there to tempt you to buy for the season ahead!

Alpacas getting up close and personal!

Live music too!

Lead the way!

Tea cosies going for 10 euros

Baskets for all occasions!

Lots of Snowdrops!

Chickens, sorry do not know the breed!

Catching up on the gossip!

They must have known it was Valentines Day!

Going home in the late evening, the sun was sinking in a ball of red fire! View coming down Summerhill North, Cork City.


  1. How did Summerhill North relocate to the west?! It looks a great day out, I was spring cleaning all day sat and sun.
    I was out there about 2 weeks ago and debated taking put the camera to snap the chinese warriors hiding in the bushes!

  2. I should have clarified that, but we came home and then I went to Kilcully as it was still nice and thats how Summerhill came into the picture! I had to park the car and get out the camera when I saw the sun!

  3. Hi Kathleen,
    Looks like you had a great day at the garden centre. Loved seeing the pictures of the alpacas....I can't imagine having one for a family pet!
    Beautiful shot of the sun setting.
    Have a great day.

  4. Alpacas as Guard animals - yes I think I would run a mile.
    Miss Katie's tea rooms look worth a visit.
