Meteorologically speaking August was a wicked month: wickedly good and wickedly bad. The Irish weather flip-flopped in a way that would have shamed your average politician. Some days dark clouds scudded like missiles across the sky discharging their watery cargo hither and thither and on others the sun shone a bright sunflower-yellow in a clear blue sky.
Looking back on my instagram feed for August I remember: making a wish when I saw a horseshoe shaped door; walks in the park; looking at a kite surfing dude threading the waves on a sunny bank holiday Saturday; eating a divine chocolate fondant at Dublin’s French Paradox; rediscovering how much I love the scent of freesias; some misty seaside days; drinking coffee on a bank holiday Monday in Kennedy’s in the pretty village of Enniskerry; sunsets getting earlier as the month marched on …
There’s already a slight chill in the air and I am sad to see the days get shorter but I am also looking forward to the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ and what ever blows in on the autumn breezes.

That’s good – sometimes rain is badly needed.

Silly me- I thought your blog was called “Just add altitude” and I came to see what you were looking down on! Not disappointed though. I love that central shot. Enniskerry looks like my kind of village.
Nice to meet you.
Thank you very much for your comment and your kind words. Enniskerry is a very pretty village filled with a mix of old and interesting houses so yes I think you would like it. Nice to *meet* you too.
