Today is cold and cloudy but yesterday was a scorcher so because Niall had a job out in Cooley Sean and I headed off to the Bally Mac again. This time we had a picnic lunch in the orchards, finished off with a pot of hot drinking chocolate:0) In my books, it's never too hot for hot chocolate.
The orchard has the look and feeling of faded glory and reminds me of my grandmother's gardens. She had orchards, rose gardens and tennis courts, and I have memories of walking in them in the hot sun many years ago. Here, in the Bally Mac they have rose gardens and rhubarb beds alongside the apple trees.
I took a few photos of the roses especially for Heather L. Hope you like them Heather.
We had our first BBQ of the Summer and Niall taught Sean a thing or two. Here he is, all excited that it went on fire!
