The last morning we were in Ireland, I took a long walk in the misty rain.  I knew we were going to be sitting in the airport and sitting on the plane for many hours and I wanted to get a little exercise to offset all that sitting.

Garden flowers were still in full bloom in every yard.  There were nasturtiums that overgrew the flowerbed and spread up embankments and down to the road. Wes and I have tried to grow these Jack O’lantern flowers several times, but squirrels always eat them,  disappointing us greatly.  There was one yard with a huge patch of Jack O’lanterns making me wonder if, in addition to no snakes, there are no squirrels in Ireland. One thing I didn’t see was domestic, planted, colorful morning glories.  But, that shortcoming was alleviated by the large beautiful wild ones that grew everywhere on the roadsides that wasn’t covered by yummy blackberries.

All too soon, it was time to leave for the airport. I could have walked and photographed for several more hours.
