Beautiful pink and yellow wild flower. I’m not sure what type of flower it is. There was thorns on the branches so possibly a rose? If anyone knows please leave a comment to enlighten me.

Dying Rose

Dying cream rose surrounded by pink daisies…

Adare Manor

Restoration works began on the Manor in 1987 when it was acquired by the Kane family from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It took little more than a year , but when the Manor was finally completed in 1988 Adare Manor as a hotel was now a world class home away from home. As a 5-star luxury hotel, the manor boasts such guests as ex-US President and First Lady, Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Golf Course was opened in August 1995.   Adare Manor attracts anglers from around the globe on account of its excellent trout fishing in the River Maigue.

Also on the Manor property sit two intriguing ruins; The Saint Nicholas Church and Chantry Chapel. Both date back to the 12th century. St. Nicholas is the only accessible ruin, as the Chapel sits in the middle of the golf course and casual foot traffic is not allowed.

One of the more intriguing features of Adare Manor is the lettered text carved into the front of the south parapet which reads – “Except the Lord build the house, then labour is but lost that built it.”

Pink Flower

Pink Flower – with hints of white and yellow through the beautiful petals.  I thought this flower was very pretty and warn, nearly like a pink daisy but on a larger scale.  Not quite sure what this flower is called – apologies!

Lough Corrib

A view of Lough Corrib in Cong, Co. Mayo through some trees, with stong hints of green leaves and grass and some pink hydrangeas.  Also in black & white / sepia for a different depth.

Pink Carnations

Pink Carnations… with the green foliage surrounding them in a beautiful bunch of flowers… Pink is a very warm colour, might cheer us up a bit on this cold Saturday afternoon 🙂
