Colourful birds

This is part of the animal sanctuary I shared last week and today I'm sharing some of the birds there.

The peacock and hens...

First time I've seen an orange duck...

Thanks to all who comment and visit.

Friday Rambles and Reflection

I invite you to join me for my Friday ramble as I explore around the river and road . The river was low and surface smooth enough to make for a great sky reflection. Linking with Weekend Reflections HERE

Close to the river, an old farmhouse

Honeysuckle in abundance

And blackberry roses promise a good blackberry picking season.

Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Typical Scenery

Around my area, this is pretty typical of the countryside and views over the farmland.
These photos were taken a few weeks back.

Thankful today for my dear mother who had a birthday yesterday and we had a lovely day celebrating together.  She is my greatest encourager and role model.

Good Fences from around the World HERE

Sky Watch Friday HERE

Thank you for being here too!

Great Irish Famine Memorial Sign

On the Warrenpoint Harbor walk, this memorial sign has been erected back in 2015.

It reads:       The Lady Caroline

Commissioned by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, in remembrance of those who undertook the passage between Warrenpoint Co. Down and New Brunswick, Canada, and all who suffered on the island of Ireland during the Great Irish Famine.

Belfast Castle sits on the hills above Belfast and is used as a wedding venue.

The parterre has some interesting features!

It is illuminated nicely at night.

Deer and donkey

We visited an animal sanctuary last Saturday.  These are the very tame Sika deer.

Cutest little fawn was more timid.

Sweet old donkey just loved the company.

This is a baby reindeer born just a couple of weeks before.
