Welcome Lori,

Yes there are a lot of primroses and pansies here at this time of year.They are so colourful!

Spiddal, County Galway is a lovely place and has great scenery!

Thea I live in Oklahoma now and was born in Penna. Yes it is expensive but if one wants to know where he came from you can make it happen. The leaves are starting to come out on the trees here. It's raining right now of which we are in dire need. Starting to be concerned about the water table for we are on a well. Got to get back to my research.

Hi, I joined the Ireland group for two reasons, 1st my great grandmother was born in Spiddal, Galway. My GG grandparents, Barbara and Patrick Geoghegan and 1 sibling stayed in Ireland. I want to go someday and find their graves. I got tears in my eyes when I saw in photos of Spiddal,so beautiful, it must have killed them to leave and come to the states. The other reason is I LOVE primroses and there are  limited  varieties that you can get here. I have ordered seed  and plants from Barnhaven Primroses, in France and seed from Chiltern Seeds in the UK. I'm guessing  primroses are a big deal in Ireland as well?

William what state are you in ? i was thinking about you doing the ancestry thing . and wanted to remind you that you have friends in here and there may be some way we can help . i know that doing ancestry .com can cost quite a bit of money . the snow has not left the house yet . so i am praying that my little cherry trees are doing well . My husband just saw a bumble bee . so spring is on the way to my house . it will probly be another 2- 3 weeks before it hits there .

Hi Catherine decided to take a break fro the Ancestry I have been working on for 2 months now. The wind we are having here today must have came from you all it is 50mph plus since about noon time or there abouts we had some good gusts for the doors and windows where whistling dixie. A few fires have been started and eats up a lot of water which we don't have a lot of right now. Pretty much all the farmers ponds are dried up around my area.We are in a very high fire alert we need rain.

Hy Guys.....Ireland did not get blown away by the wind last Saturday and Sunday turned out to be very cold and my grandaughter had come out to help with the fairy garden but unfortunately it was too cold to stay out. Then Monday turned out to be a lovely fine warm day...and today...well..misty and raining and miserable. What is with Mother Nature, she cannot make up her mind !

Tomorrow I have to stay near the house cause the "cable man" is coming to install a new sky+ box. You won't believe this but he just rang me to say he will be here between 10a.m. and 12 midday!! Nee neeew,weird!

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on March 2, 2012 at 6:10pm

Tis midnight here now and I can hear the wind rising. We have been forecast very cold weather by the end of the weekend...My Poor Seedlings!!

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on February 29, 2012 at 4:38pm

Seems like the dole can pick and choose what IS recognised as a job!!!

Thanks Thea :)

Our weather is suppose to plummet again this weekend. Sleet showers,and some snow on high hills expected!! Not Fair :(
