'Blacks' garden centre outside julainstown near where you live, Aldi or Lidl, if your near Ashbourne try McD's or Ratoath garden centre, to be honest i have seen them in garages! :-) good hunting.

Hi John that lighting looks great. I was looking at your garden pictures and you seem to have a piece of Heaven on your hill. The garden looks so interesting and I look forward to seeing more pictures.

The Cuckoo

20 April 2011 20:17:02
I heard the Cuckoo today the first time in many years,what a beautiful sound brought me back to when I was much younger and used to hear the Cuckoo regulary.
Jacinta D Jacinta D 20 April 2011 20:33:37

Don't think I have ever had the pleasure of hearing a cuckoo.

rosburke rosburke 20 April 2011 21:17:41

have not heard the cuckoo yet this year,

fran m fran m 20 April 2011 21:29:39

Only heard one a couple of times, you never forget the sound.

Periwinkle Periwinkle 20 April 2011 21:38:10

Im waiting patiently to hear the cuckoo for the first time this year. Summer would not be the same without it. Like the arrival of the swallows.

Moya Moya 20 April 2011 22:26:06
