Every Spring theres a beautiful space that I like to visit down one of these red dirt country roads that are everywhere around us, and visit some 100 year old daffodils, enjoying the sunshine streaming through the trees.
The unusual garden "Victors Way" is located just outside of the village of Roundwood in Co. Wicklow and while the 22 acre property features small lakes, stunning views and forested areas, it's a scenic purposeful walk with a focus on meditation.
After a couple of years of unsuccessfully trying to grow onions from commercial seed, I've gotten on to a heritage seed from way back that gives you prolific onions and so much more...its's really true that the old varieties are the best!
I have to say I'm on a real porridge kick lately, after discovering and feeling first-hand the benefits of buckwheat grains. By "activating" the grains overnight, it provides a lovely nutty flavour thats high in amino acids, great for your tummy and serotonin levels, meaning it actually does make you feel full and happy!
With the hot summer about to break on us here in the southern hemisphere, it's nice to know that, especially if you're a city dweller, there's a cool and soothing oasis in the middle of the city that you can escape to.
