Jane's December ****selection box*** a beautiful day out to the sea last week and Christmas wishes from Towser the Whippet.

we were sitting on an old upturned gravestone having our picnic looking out at THIS !!! just last week, feeling very blessed and lucky.
A time out of time day.

Please click on the gravestone images the detail is very beautiful.
I was amazed to see the woman with her arms up in the air, a very rare and unusual image to find, and yet sadly it is weathering away.

a bird and an angel,adorable.

my dear friend at the ruins

This gravestone is pre- famine,1790  just look at the beautifully inscribed hand tools,such nice lines.

an evocative old metal bed head,so simple yet a work of great craft

The above images are from the beautiful Burrishoole cemetry last week
on the day of the full moon. My friend and I had a picnic and watched the sun play on the sea of clew bay.
We also tramped round an old ruin of a beautiful house which must have been most handsome in its day, made of bricks and fine flagstones.

This is my dear dog Towser, who was reading my Before the Dawn, the concert progamme of Kate Bush's 2014 concert.
Kate Bush and dream of sheep (live)
Towser would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas on behalf of his family.
