Great photo selection for St. Patrick's Day. I wonder how often you can actually see those cliffs - looks like one of those places that could be foggy much of the time.

So gorgeous, and green! All the family has visited but us! I travel vicariously! I actually have an oil of the cliffs hanging in my hallway!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What a gorgeous shot. The cliffs are something like those here in my Bay of Fundy, though Ireland is far greener. And I don't get that close to the edge. Happy St. Patrick Day to you!

Auntie E said...

And a Mighty Top of the Day to you.
My WW link for you

Beth F said...

Nice job on both! I'm going to have to plan an Ireland trip.

Hey, is that you in the photo?! I've not been to Ireland, but I love rugged coastlines and enjoyed similar(ish) scenery in Cornwall. I'm so itchin' to travel to the UK/Ireland!!!!

sweet bay said...

Oh my gosh those cliffs in Ireland are magnificent!

Kate said...

Hi, Stan; Strong winds tend to keep the fog away so it's generally pretty clear along those cliffs.

Cindi - you have to go! Everything about Ireland (other than the traffic) is just breathtaking!

Thx, Jan :)

Hi, GrammyMouse; No that's not me in the pic. It's my daughter. After 2 weeks of touring Ireland with her mom she was probably in the mood to jump off that cliff! :)

Thx, Caite; I thought your WW post was terrific!

Kate said...

Sukhmandir -- I learn something new every time I pay you a visit. Thanks for visiting me, too.

Jodi;
How fortunate you are to live by the sea. The grass is always greener, I suppose, but that has always been my dream!

Thanks for stopping by Auntie E, I'm heading over to pay you a visit now..

Kate said...

Happy St. Paddy's Day, Joy! I hope you're wearing something green!

Hi, Monica!
No, that's not me in the picture. I'm behind the camera. That's my daughter, L. who clearly is not afraid of heights! PS: I mailed your seeds.

Thx, Sweet Bay! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Beautiful!

Hi Kate. Your picture of the Iron Cross oxalis is so pretty. Wow, I love the picture of the Cliffs of Mohler. Ireland is one of the places that I have always wanted to visit. I think it is because so many in the Family tree came from there on both sides.
Hope your snow is all melting Kate.

Kate said...

Thx, Lona;
The first time I visited Ireland was with my Mother when daughter L (in the photo) was just a bebe. Our family tree is pretty much all Irish as well so it was xtra special traveling that countryside.

Titanium said...

Perfect for St. Patty's Day! Wow... the colors of the cliffs against the water... I love the perspective in that photo.

Beautifully done, Kate. As always!

Carol said...

Stunning! HSP!

The Ranting Mommy said...

Gorgeous! Makes we want to go to Ireland!! Though it is making me a little nervous for whomever is taking that shot? Is that you? It looks like you are a sneeze away from a looooonnnnggg fall!

Melissa Mashburn said...

wwwwoow, what a gorgeous (and fitting) photo!!

BK said...

The first shot is simply stunning!

Melanie said...

The colours are beautiful, even the colour of your daughters jacket fits in. I love the colours in the Oxalsis too, I guess you are not short on luck :)

Snowcatcher said...

Oh, those certainly look a lot more inviting than it does outside right now, which I suppose you experienced yesterday... Lovely way to mark nearly the end of winter!

joey said...
