Early morning in our garden in Co. Mayo – July 2012

by Ciaran Burke

Summer, oh where is the summer? This morning was a rare sunny start and I was up early to see the fog lifting its damp veil from around our plants. There is a saying in Ireland, “sun before seven is gone by eleven”. You really do have to get up early to get the best of the day. I was out with the camera at just after 6am, I had started working on a garden plan but the light was fabulous and there was not a breath of wind, to good a moment to miss… I hope you enjoy my photos of some of my favourite plants in the garden at the moment.

  1. ‘sun before seven is gone by eleven’ I’ve never heard this ‘Irish’ saying and can only assume it’s a colloquial phrase. Lets keep our fingers crossed that St. Swithun’s day (July 15th) is a dry one! Fab photos as always Ciaran, brightened up this wet grey day here in Deansgrange – thanks 🙂

  2. I love your garden, it looks a bit like mine!

  3. Thank You Jemima! You mean you have lots of weeds in your garden too? 🙂
