Since I started posting on my Blog again at the start of February this year, I have received just over five thousand likes, over one thousand comments and 350 followings.

I just wanted to take the time to say thank you, so much to everyone.

You have all been so kind and lifted my spirits so much, I have also greatly enjoyed finding so many great artists on the word-press system. Wonderful art work and images from all around the world!!

THANK YOU !

When I was considering posting these images, I was wondering if I should show the setting of this old and wonderful red mill door. Its located on the site of on old mill sitting on the river Barrow as it runs through Goresbridge, county Kilkenny.

Sometimes just displaying something like a door just by itself can create a Mystery.

On this occasion, I will show the door in its location, I am however thinking of creating a series of images that do separate these kind of subject’s from their surroundings.

In ancient woodlands, bluebells and wild garlic grow

In Ancient Woodlands

We walked within an ancient wood
Beside the path
Where oak and beech and hazel stood,
Their leaves the pale shades of May.

By bole and bough, still black with rain,
The sunlight filtered where it would
Across a glowing, radiant stain—
We stood within a bluebell wood!

And stood and stood, both lost for words,
As all around the woodland rang
And echoed with the cries of birds
Who sang and sang …

My mind has marked that afternoon
To hoard against life’s stone and sling;
Should I go late, or I go soon,
The bluebells glow where wild garlic grows— the birds still sing.
