Sunday 6 May 2012: Mother's little helper
A strange day. The market was on in Kilcrohane and it wasn't raining so I thought I'd better go and ply my wares. Some nice things for sale, and all stall holders did a bit of bartering (I got some blackberry jam and 5 alpine plants in exchange for some cards) but no customers. There was a bit of a flurry as mass ended but that was that.
Home and a bit of work in the garden. I have been weeding the bog upon which the soft fruit resides. The weeds were massive - including several varieties of saplings and some huge brambles but the blueberries and gooseberries are now able to breathe and look a lot better. This little robin had a whale of a time following me around and feasting on grubs. He's perching on the gunnera which got badly scorched in the last frost and is looking very sorry for itself.
