Photo was taken yesterday at Altamount, Millstreet, Co.Cork (Irl)

The only story yesterday was Storm Eunice, with the storm bringing winds in excess of 130km and lots of trees down especially in the south west. Sadly there was also a loss of life too. Once the storm blew through, it was followed by showers of snow and hail. The primroses in our photo really stood out amongst the coat of hailstones.

My latest video is a bit different from the usual ones I share. It’s to do with bees and beekeeping and it is called ‘Our Amazing Bees – More amazing than we realise’ New

‘A Reflection called Learning To Live’

Your search for love and security takes time and is not always as straight forward as some think. Love is a gift but can often be fragile and delicate.

You learn to accept your disappointments and defeats in life with your head up and your eyes open. You learn to build your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is often too uncertain for your plans.

So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. You will learn that you really can endure, that you really are special and that you really do have worth. So live to learn and know yourself. In doing so, you will learn to live.
