Tully Renvyle Oct 2016
Soon alas, we will be leaving our beloved North Connemara, home from home of the past twelve years, in this most beautiful area of County Galway.  The green fields and flourishing wild wayside plants of summer are gradually fading back into their winter hibernation. Long gone are the springtime primroses, violets, bluebells and orchids, the ragged-robin, cowslip and the summer bog-cotton, the roadside meadow-sweet and honeysuckle, the purple and yellow flag irises, and the fiery montbretia and white dog-daisies of late summer, not to mention the golden gorse, furze, heather and summer bog colours. All gone until spring next year, when the cycle of nature restarts. But the landscape of majestic mountains, wooded hills and grassy meadows, winding roads, lakes, waterfalls and rivers, the many beautiful beaches and the blue-green ocean never fade. Not even in deepest winter does this magical Renvyle area sleep, and we will be back to visit DV. A few photos will help keep the memories alive.
