Some hellebores in the foreground too!
Daffodills and snowdrops.
The locked gates through which the drifts of snowdrops can be spied for free!
The avenue going into the castle grounds with clumps of snowdrops on each side.
The silhouette of Blarney Castle can be seen through the trees as the sun was going down.
A welcome coffee and muffin in Mackeys cafe afterwards!
Finally,spotted this great sign in the nearby Blarney Woolen Mills shop!
