Spring on the Dingle Peninsula


Each year it's the same. 
The same pleasure. 
Anticipation. 
Promise. 
And Delight.

There's growth among stones
                                                          

nettles for soup
           
eggs for baking
and mackerel to eat ...

.... when you've done the springcleaning
                                                               



.... and there's calm after winter storms.

The the word goes out ...
                                                
                                   
...  that it's time to draw the seaweed


... to fertilize the gardens


... for the coming crop of spuds.
