If you could go down to the woods today, there’s a final glorious summer-bounty surprise, if your at Ballyvolane that is. Here the hydrangeas are on the turn a rainbowed mass of inky sepia tones preceding their demise. I was there yesterday in the  dappled Autumn sunlight  … and they are powerfully beautifully,  I walked through them, amongst them, peered into them and just wanted to freeze time, they are however unforgettable.

Dizzying almost, it was a perfect moment in time and nature.IMG_7383

Decoratively, I could feast on these hydrangea tones alone… aqua to smudged lilac, copper greens to blackberry, vivid blues to softest cream and paper blush.

    Mini break in ballyvolane?



    • Magic mini break at Ballyvolane, I don’t think the kids will ever forget it and as you saw above me either… For different reasons, hydrangea obsessed after that. Can’t believe people get married right there, in the midst of all that blooming gorgeousness ! Xx
