Sign of the times!
Spotted on a Church of Scotland outdoor sign
at Lamlash, Isle of Arran, Scotland, July 2019.
The name, LAMLASH, evolved over the centuries
from that of an Irish monk, MOLAISE,
who settled on an island out in the bay,
nowadays called Holy Island.

NEW! NEW! NEW!
Following the declining interest in FLICKR pages,
I have concluded uploading work to my own pages therein,
and will put occasional 'creative' collections on this website instead.
A short explanatory note may be added to some.
My Flickr pages contained 1,768 images, both nation-wide and from further afield,
which during the past eleven years attracted 670,413 views!
(As of this date - March 8th 2020 - most of that work can still be seen at:
A much-modified old mill-wheel from near Tullahought village, County Kilkenny,
brings to mind the word 'Karma'!
Well-known old local house.
The Shepherds' Pond (part of) on the avenue to Ballyquin Gate, Curraghmore, Portlaw,
In the vicinity of Marlfield village,
can be seen a large selection of trees,
usually looking at their best
in winter, if you prefer them leafless!

The New Kid!
One of Curraghmore's new animals, now settling in well with the local sheep!
Better still, for the first time, I came across two Bank Voles while walking on the road near Tower Hill cottages some days ago. These tiny omnivorous mammals are newcomers to this country, having been first seen in County Kerry in the early 1960s.
Mouse-like in appearance, the colour of the fur on their faces (somewhat like a Robin's red breast) is what caught my eye.
Read about them via Google.
