Howth Greenery

Flowers are everywhere these days. And I am forever enamored with them-the colours, the smell, the hint of sweetness they bring to any room or space. So after seeing Emily's gorgeous post , I knew it wouldn't be too long before I went to see the small luscious patch of rhododendron trees in Howth.

It may not have been the most organised day out but sometimes aimless walks are a really good thing.

Especially when you are in the sweetest company, surrounded by nothing but greenery for miles on end.  It beats those city walks any day.

  1. I've never been to this part of Howth before but it looks beautiful. I hope to enjoy some nice day trips this summer (provided we get the weather for it) I'll add this to my list! Such beautiful greenery!

    Hope you had a lovely weekend Rincy and got to enjoy the sunshine today!

    1. Emma! I've never been to that part of Howth prior to this weekend either. It's up in the Deer Park and we ended up following nature's nooks and crannies on the way up the hill, got lost out on the golf course but it was the most green I had seen in ages. The rhododendron trees is just a small little area of greenery to the right behind the hotel/golf shop. We ended up walking to the summit like Emily had suggested and had a little break on top :)

      and I hope for day trips too-- I still have to make it out to Skerries! Hope you had a lovely weekend too xx

  4. Beautiful Rincy! I loved walking there on my own with absolutely no one around, so beautiful! I might go back and bring E. with me this time because it feels also like a romantic place. And did you smell all the wild garlic around? x

    1. Totally agree Yolene! I hope you do get a chance to go with E and maybe enjoy some put-put at the golf course on the way back ? ;) And yes to the wild garlic! Next time I take a little day trip, I will definitely msg you. Have a sweet little week x

  5. Lovely pictures. Brings back all the momories, as I grew up there and May walks in the "rhodies" was a must. In 30 years I have only been back twice in May, so thanks for sharing (and thanks to Aqua for directing me here from FB).

    1. Michael, so jealous that you grew up around those gorgeous blooms! I hope this is just the start of you going back there for May walks again should you have the opportunity :)

      So glad to have you here!

  6. Lovely photographs Rincy, especially on a day like today where it has been raining and drizzling all day, it's so lovely to step into your world for a few moments. I especially love the shot of the trees all curved into a beautiful archway - that would make an amazing screensaver!

    Hope you're well, if you're in England at any point over the summer do let me know. Miss you lots you little cute bird! xx

  8. Hi Rincy, Lovely to find your blog via decor8 today. I loved your post over there, and you're right, it's all about the company and a shared meal. We should all do well to remember this and gather around a table as often as possible!
    Your photos here are beautiful. It certainly looks like a stunning part of the world. Amanda x

    1. Amanda, thank you so much for your sweet comments! I am a big fan of shared meals. Even if it is as simple as just sharing a sandwich at lunchtime ;)

      ..Ireland really is a beautiful place (even on the very gray days), so happy to have you here! x
