Looks a lovely walk colourful too my old neighbour who use to live in southern Ireland use to say how the fuchsia's use to grow wild along the lanes too

2 Jun, 2009

 

very true Morgana, the fushia's growing wild over here are a beautiful sight to see. you usually see loads of them on the south west coast

What a Wonderful Lane Eileen so full of Pretty Flowers :)

No wonder Maeve has chosen it for her home its beautiful, also Mave Binchy is a great writer really gets in depth with her characters.

The first time we went to Ireland we were puzzled as to what the red lines were seperating the fields , it was only when you were closer that you could see it was fuschia hedging , we were amazed by it , stunning !

3 Jun, 2009

 

Reminds of the roads we drive over in Wales...sheep get in the way every once in a while..lol...but the flowers growing out the sides are like this..yes..just gorgeous...not a road or lane like it here where I live at all...should be..makes me home sick to get right back all the sooner seeing this Irish...

3 Jun, 2009

 

aww CJ , i hope the photo didnt make you feel too home sick

3 Jun, 2009

 

I have some photo's that look a lot like this one Eileen...I have not looked really too much..I do get homesick to be back with GF taking walks with him..
I am trying to enjoy as much as I can, my time here while I get ready to go back..but I do miss him and Wales..

Eileen / Arlene I have put a pic .. of the Fuschia hedges on for you :o)

4 Jun, 2009

 

ah good stuff Amy, ill go have a look now

4 Jun, 2009

 

Do you think they may be wild Valerian Eileen? My Mum has the pink in her garden and it looks like this....:o)

4 Jun, 2009

 

i googled images of Valerian Janey and some of the pic do look like these

4 Jun, 2009

 

we get a wild red Valerian on walls and things,Janey.This looks like a lovely place to walk~have the fuchsias gone wild the way Crocosmia and Rhododendron have or is it still deliberately planted?

4 Jun, 2009

 

the fushia's have def gone wild. although this hedge was prob planted
the Rhododendron's are a real threat to our native flora

4 Jun, 2009

 

my kind of scene...Irish

5 Jun, 2009

 

thanks Deida

Hmmm..we have wild Rhodies here but they do not seem to be a threat to much of anything..our trees in the forests that they grow in are so big that the Rhodies do well to even stay at all..the worst scourge we have now it the Scotch Broom which I was totally shocked and apalled to see being sold in garden centers in Wales..LOL..I pruned one for GF to help it along and I could not believe I was nurturing one in his garden...lol..oh my goodness..our roads are lined with it and it takes over the pastures. I have known the battle with it all my life.

6 Jun, 2009

 

we sell Scotch Broom here too in garden centres, my sister recently bought 8 of them lol.

in Kerry in one of our national parks the forest floor is bare, nothing not even our native Oak trees can grow.
a lot of the Rhodie's have been cleared now thanks to volunteers so hopefully things will start growing again

6 Jun, 2009

 

The only place I have seen the wild rhodies here take over are in the Olympic Mt.s, high in the timber lines,where it has been cleared by loggers..there are open fields of them, but they are very stunted and when the trees begin to grow again, they seem to loose ground ...down lower they tend to be tall and gangly, growing up into the lower tree limbs and blooming in odd places that you don't expect to see a Rhodie bloom at all..it is one of my favorite times of year when they are blooming in the forests..we have to take them out in the pastures as they are poisoness to horses..as is Scotch broom.

Hmmm very explorable

That's beautiful Irish. I started my honeymoon overlooking Dublin Bay, before moving on to Bantry Bay. Such a beautiful country - home of my ancestors. :-)
