Today I woke in Dun Laoire to a bright sunny but chilly morning. An early morning run, the sun lighting up the yellow and Bronze leaves and sparkling on Dublin Bay, poetic pinks and blues of the early morning sky.
I’m out again in the afternoon another walk, this time in woods and by river suck in county Galway, low sun through the trees and on the water, flocks of ducks and waders, Blewits and Cloudy Agarics under the trees, I’ll serve these with cous-cous and veggies and a handful of Stellaria with it’s tiny white flowers.
In the fields shaded from the sun patches of fog and frost linger all day, on way home something catches my eye and I jump the wall to investigate, my curiosity is rewarded with a large patch of Horse Mushrooms.
My fleece top makes an instant “basket” to carry home the booty.
Meanwhile I am busy introducing my Wild Beech Leaf Liqueur to the best outlets and will have stocks in Galway, Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Tullamore, Portlaoise and of course Birr shortly. Thank you all for inquiries and your patience. tasting at Egan’s wine shop Portlaoise Friday November 28th.
