Hello Girls!


Yesterday was such a pretty spring day that I decided to go for a bicycle ride along some of the country lanes.

Lo and behold these pretty  cows were enjoying the the day too, right beside the lane.
Soft gentle eyes...

Titanic Quarter


For more recent followers, here are photos I took last year of the Titanic Quarter in Belfast Docks, which is where the SS Nomadic is on view.  You can board the Nomadic for a tour along with the visitor attraction inside the Titanic exhibition Centre above.




 The 'skin' of the building is fascinating and dynamic and the shape obviously replicates the bow of the Titanic.
 It was wonderful to see the light reflecting off the surface.



Shallow pools of water surround the building to add to the experience of boarding the Titanic.

Hope Springs Anew


Signs of spring abound and with them comes renewed hope for a time new life and joy.

So thankful today for renewed health and strength amongst our children after their bouts of illness and for the fresh green grass that I will have to mow soon!

The dark clouds of winter are rolling away for blue skies of spring and summer! Roll on!

Be A Pineapple


Recently, sandwich boards around town have been catching my eye and this one makes me smile!

So be sweet and enjoy your day! Though I don't think wearing a crown is obligatory!!

SS Nomadic


The SS Nomadic is the sole surviving ship of the White Star Line, and a sister ship of the much larger Titanic.  It is a permanent visitor attraction at the Titanic Quarter Belfast.

Spring Gardens Mural


Just along the road from C.S.Lewis Square on the Newtownards Road, East Belfast, another Community Garden has been opened and was gearing up for spring when we visited the area.

The gable wall of an adjacent premises has been used to advertise the concept of freedom in the city and a slice of rurality in an urban setting.

Birds on the Lagan

Disappointed mallards - I had no snacks for them!

We went cycling along the Lagan towpath during the week and at least the rain stayed off. I stopped a couple of times to snap some 'fowl' photos with my iPhone so they're not the greatest.


This greylag goose was in a hurry
