Margie and Mr Margie Saturdays

The last few Saturdays have been Margie and Mr. Margie Saturdays, one of the days we loaded up the Morris with a picnic basket, a Cath Kidston throw and set off to County Wicklow, driving through the mountains




and ended up at the lakes in Valleymount, with a fine appetite for our salad, bread, cheese and fruit.



The next one we drove to visit friends in County Carlow, whom we had not seen for some time, we walked up the rocky hill at the back of their house and gathered froccans



before walking back along Shannon's Lane, sharing stories and news and promising to see one another before too long.




The lovely foxglove was growing among the ferns all along the roadside, in the mountains and the hills.

Who knows where Margie and Mr. Margie Saturday will bring us next time.

Hugs,

Margie

Beautiful photography, Margie! My favorite photo is of Shannon's Lane because it opens up to that lovely scene and beyond...I'm a sucker for having a lovely home framed. Now I must go find out about whatever it was that you were collecting for your link didn't tell me a thing or did it?

Beautiful new header, too!!

Terrific! Google brought me right back here and then I had to do a thorough read to find it on the link you provided, which was third on the list. At least I am no longer curious! :D

Hi Margie, Thanks for visiting my place. I am enchanted with your pictures of Ireland. I've never been there but hope the day may come.

I used to be a crafter -- quilts, embroidery, decorated gourds, painting -- but now that I'm a crime fiction writer with deadlines always looming, my crafting time is minimal.

I'll enjoy Ireland, for now, through your blog!

Oh my goodness, Margie, what a beautiful country you and Mr. Margie live in! One day we'll make it there - here's hoping!

I also wanted to let you know I've left an award for you on my blog♥

Gathering froccans??? Your weekends sound like heaven on earth. I wish my Bobby G. liked to drive with no where in mind except to see the scenery. He's the type to want to get on the super highways to get places...fast. LOL...Guess that's why I am giving him a race car ride for our anniversary...fast lane stuff.. Hi Margie. Hope you have a sweet sweet weekend. xo Lynn

Hello! My package arrived yesterday and I am so excited! Thank you for the Cath Kidston bag and the three skeins of yarn! One can never have too many bags, and this one is perfect! I love the star print. I'm thinking something with luscious cables for the yarn. Your sentiments in the card are so sweet. I really enjoy your friendship even though we're far away. Thank you so much, Margie! ((hugs)) right back to you!
