Friday ~~~ Finding Beauty

Kylemore Abbey - Ireland


Foxglove - Digitalis Purpurea - Lus Mor




This is my first post for "Friday ~~ Finding Beauty" and wanted to share one of the most beautiful places I've visited .....Kylemore Abbey in Ireland.  In a previous post back in August 2009 I shared my pictures of  the Gothic Church at Kylemore.  I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. 

Thanks to Claudia at Dipty Road for hosting this new event!

Hi Mumzie! This is my first post for "Friday-Finding Beauty" too! Nice to meet you! My grandfather taught me to be most proud of my Irish heritage, but I'm afraid that ever making the trip there is just a dream. I still am amazed though how I can still experience the beauty of Ireland through photos and stories.. and new friends made in Blogland! Your photos are beautiful! I thought your photos in the previous post were sweet too! (0; Happy Friday, and hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Oh how beautiful! How lucky were you to visit such a majestic place. I would love to visit Ireland someday. It has always intrigued it, with it history and green landscapes.
Thanks for sharing your trip.
