Flowers on Saturday *13*


For how to participate in Flowers on Saturday read HERE


To see THE FAVOURITE PHOTO from last week visit GEMMA'S - GREYSCALE TERRITORY I hope you'll have time to check her beautiful photo. I love the shape of that flower she used.


Ireland had few days break from snow and frost but it's back again, I was talking to one of the ladies that lives here for the whole life and she said to me that neither her or her mother never seen so much snow over here. Is the climate changing? The weather conditions in Ireland are changing, that's for sure.

Here's my entry, a flower that you have seen already, but this time- a frosty version. One of the nights was very foggy and cold and when I woke up in the morning, the world outside looked beautiful, everything was white, covered with frost.


Just to let you know there will be no Flowers on Saturday on the 25th of December. Next meme will be posted on the 1st of January :)

Now it's your turn to show your great photos:

Snow, Snow, Snow....


We've got some snow, when I say some, I mean a lot like for Ireland. I don't think people here seen so much snow ever. The country is not used to that at all, most of the schools are closed, people can't get to work. But the kids love it.

I love when everything is covered in snow and it's a sunny day, a little bit frosty but not too much, it looks so nice then.

My Two questions for you today:

Walk on the beach


Last Sunday we went for a walk on the Termonfeckin beach in Co.Louth. The Sun was shining and it looked like nice warm day, but when we got the the beach all we could feel was very cold and strong wind. However it was great to get out from the house and spend some time in the fresh air.


Here are some photos that I took that day and linking them with few photo challenges.


My Sweet Shot for today
Sweet Shot Day




I am thankful for everything I have experienced
In this life , to be able to learn new things like photography







There is also the challenge of peace. As a supreme good and the condition for attaining many other essential goods, peace is the dream of every generation.
~Pope John Paul II Quote~






We had great time that day even if the wind was a bit too strong :)
