Sunday, 16th, we took the scenic drive around the ring of Kerry. this is the most beautiful scenery we have seen so far.
They have a weed problem in their national park which is threatening to strangle the natural vegetation. Rhododendrons. They are thick all through the woods. And all along the side of the roads the hedgerows are full of fuschias. the dampness and the peaty soils are perfect for both and thwy grow onto 10-15 ft schrubs. Hydrangeas also grow to large shrubs here.
It's Monday morning here and we are off to Waterford.
