Antrim Coast Road

 Between Ballygally and Glenarm on the Antrim Coast Road







Glenarm, Antrim Coast Road, Co. Antrim

Glenarm is just so beautiful, no matter what season it is but yesterday it looked exceptional in the summer sunshine!

 Taken from the Dickeystown Road.














Ballygally, Antrim Coast Road, Co. Antrim

 The sunshine is lasting well and we were able to get a day to the Antrim Coast Rd yesterday. I'm not sure who painted the face on this rock but it seems to have been there for years now and lots of folk stop off to take photos on their way through Ballygally.

 One day I'm going to get up on that wall and take a photo through that circle but there were too many people around yesterday and I didn't want to slip off on the seaweed in front of them !



 Just opposite the Ballygally Castle Hotel.

In my garden today


Some flowers in the garden this morning. These are surviving on soapy dishwater during the dry spell and hose pipe ban in Northern Ireland. 
I've had a massive clearout of plants over the last few months to make the garden more manageable and enjoyable so it doesn't have the "mature" look that I love but hopefully it will recover with some TLC
 Handel climbing rose

 Surfinia petunias and pelargonium

 Pansies


 Castor oil plant - Fatsia Japonica

 Aster

 Marigold - they are everywhere in the garden! I use them in salads and also to stop bleeding if I cut myself 

Carnation

Fiesta Fever paper from Trimcraft - double easel card

 Fiesta Fever papers from Trimcraft sure are bright and sunny! You've just got to smile! :)
I made this double easel card and added the Dovecraft Cactus and Llama dies and some brand new First Edition sentiment dies :)



I ran the ideas past my advisor before going ahead! ;)

Lough Neagh, Antrim


We used a hospital appointment in Antrim this morning as an excuse for a short trip to Lough Neagh. Each of these photos were taken only a short distance from the car :) We even managed to have lunch in the Castle grounds :)
