I’ve recently returned from a trip to the beautiful island of Majorca. I’ve never had an inkling to holiday there before. I’ve always stuck to the Canaries where you are pretty much guaranteed sun all week. But after doing some research on Majorca, we decided to go to Alcudia located in the north east of the island. This is an absolutely gorgeous place. Beautiful weather, gorgeous coastline, friendly people and good food. There are markets every day of the week in Majorca and we were lucky enough to get to go to one. It had absolutely everything from leathers to clothes and textiles to fruit.

Ok no more flower pics I promise. Well not for a while at least.
Round and round and round we go… where will it end? Nobody knows! I love roses. They are the most delicate and graceful of flowers.
A single open bud on this, once again, unknown flower. I love how it sits proud of the green backdrop of grass.
High Contrast floral imagery in the National Botanic Gardens. I love these flowers. They are so elegant, and the colours are so vibrant at this time of year.

Beautiful colours at this time of year in The National Botanic Gardens.
The last time I visited the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin’s Glasnevin, the rose garden was closed for renovation. I am happy to announce that it has now been reopened and boasts some of the countries finest roses. I am not the only one to think so. This wasp took a shine to this pretty pink arrangement and nestled its head inside the voluptuous petals to get closer to the pollen hidden inside.
I took this photograph a couple of weeks ago while camping in Silver Strand. I didn’t have my camera with me so took this picture on my iPhone. It was taken at approximately 5am in the morning when the sun was just showing its head.
